  • This stylish avant-garde film is a meditation on the work of acclaimed black poet Langston Hughes. The film reclaims and celebrates Langston Hughes as an important black gay voice in American culture. Original footage of the Cotton Club in the 1920s, archival footage depicting the Harlem Renaissance period, and Robert Mapplethorpe's photos of beautiful black men set the scene for this exploration of attitudes toward homosexuality.

    "...The act of LOOKING FOR LANGSTON becomes an act of visually articulating desire, appreciating the truth of revelation....[A] lyrical mediation on Hughes..."
    Film Comment

    "...Elegant....LOOKING FOR LANGSTON is exceptionally poignant and imaginative..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "It's a dense, heady mix, artfully constructed, politically resonant and full of sensuality."
