A few days late on this post, but I am happy to say that MoMA is running a short program called Critical Reverie: The Films of Isaac Julien
Here’s a but about the series in their words:
Emerging in the neighboring club cultures of funk, disco, and soul; leftist political activism; and collectivism in British independent filmmaking, Julien made his first films as a student at Central Saint Martins. Through his films, Julien charted new representations of a self—black, gay, and British—that was largely excluded from the cultural climate of the 1980s, heralding what came to be known as New Queer Cinema. From Langston Hughes to Frantz Fanon to the 1977 Silver Jubilee, Julien combines documentary archival material with poetic fictionalizations that alternately stand in for a silenced ancestral past and act as the starting point for a viable future.
