Short interview with Issac Julien about the screening on Channel 4 of his film: Looking for Langston

““Bruce Nugent for example was a bohemian, and it was that kind of lifestyle, that poetic nuance that I wanted to share with everybody“. Director Issac Julien is talking about one of the poets featured in Looking for Langston, his study of the Harlem Renaissance of the 20’s shown on Channel 4 in March and is now getting a cinema release at the Metro with “Fun Down There.“
