Watch Party: Tongues Untied – Black History Month Scotland

wtch party film


Scottish Queer International Film Festival presents TONGUES UNITED

In his own words, Marlon Riggs aimed to shatter the “nation’s brutalising silence on matters of sexual and racial difference” with his 1989 film Tongues Untied. A challenging and captivating work, many of Riggs’ key messages still resonate with the Black queer experience in the USA and Europe.

There will be a discussion about the themes raised after the screening. Curated by Harvey Dimond. Presented in partnership with Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights (CRER) for Black History Month Scotland.


Tickets are on a sliding scale of FREE, £2, £4, £6, or £8. The event takes place on Zoom. Book tickets in advance at SQIFF. An audience access fund is available to assist people based within Scotland who have no or limited internet access to attend the Festival. If you would like to apply for this, please contact
