Looking for Langston

The private world of the black artists and writers such as Langston Hughes who formed the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s is recreated in a mythic dimension.

The film switches from archive footage to a stylised version of the jazz and blues infected Harlem to explore questions of black beauty within queer desire.
