Wu Tsang Introduces "Wildness"
Wu Tsang Introduces "Wildness" |
This tribute to community, creativity, and dignity documents (with magic realist touches) Los Angelesís historic Silver Platter, an LGBT-friendly bar that has catered to Latino immigrants since 1963. Centered on the group of young, queer artists of color (including Tsang and DJs Nguzunguzu and Total Freedom) who organize the barís weekly performance-art party, Wildness examines what happens when the partyís popularity raises issues of safety and belonging and shows how difference can be a catalyst for both strife and growth. The film was produced with support from the Wexís Film/Video Studio program and featured in the Whitney Biennial and MoMAís Documentary Fortnight series. (74 mins., HDcam)
