MORE LIFE — MARLON RIGGS’ TONGUES UNTIED

178

 

When the German doctors had told me that both of my kidneys had ceased to function and that I was HIV positive to boot? Stunned, inert, silent, yet alert. I lay in that German hospital bed, my inner eyes, at last, beginning to open. — Marlon Riggs

As part of the continuing exhibition More Life—commemorating the four decades since AIDS entered the national consciousness—David Zwirner will present two more special evening screenings of Riggs’ radical landmark film essay TONGUES UNTIED.
