A seminal work of queer cinema, Tongues Untied explores the intersections of black and gay culture, from the struggles to the moments of joy and beauty, plus everything in between. This documentary is unconventional in form itself, combining collage, spoken word, and video art. PBS's broadcasting of the film caused an outcry from conservative American politicians and fundamentalist Christians.
