Production still from Young Soul Rebels by Isaac Julien (1991, 105 min., 4K restoration).

Join us Thursday, February 22, at 6 pm, for Isaac Julien’s delightfully rebellious debut feature about sex, politics, music and friendship in 1977 London. During the week of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, a young black London DJ, who together with his gay partner operates a pirate radio station, becomes implicated in the murder of a mutual friend.

Experience a single-channel film from Julien’s early career, in contrast to the immersive, multi-channel experience of the exhibition Isaac Julien: Lessons of the Hour, on view in the Malloy Wing through May 19, 2024. This screening is part of the Tang’s ongoing series Whole Grain: Experiments in Film & Video.
