Film Still, Wildness (2012) Directed by Wu Tsang

Wu Tsang, Wildness. USA, 2012, 75 min.

Directed by Wu Tsang. Wildness is a portrait of the Silver Platter, a historic, LGBT-friendly bar on the eastside of Los Angeles that has catered to the Latin immigrant community since 1963. With a magical-realist flourish – the bar itself becomes a character in the film – Wildness captures the creativity and conflict that ensue when a group of young, queer artists of colour (Wu Tsang, DJs NGUZUNGUZU and Total Freedom) organise a weekly performance art party, called Wildness, at the bar. What does ‘safe space’ mean, and who needs it? The search for answers to these questions creates coalitions across generations.

This activity is part of the seminar Decolonising the Museum. Arrive early! People not attending the seminar will only be admitted until all places are filled.
