Looking for ‘Looking for Langston’

Looking for ‘Looking for Langston’

A performative video work in search of Isaac Julien’s “Looking for Langston” (1989).
A captain dreams of setting sail, in search of a mysterious, intangible, comforting vision that rests at the edge of the horizon. An exploration of desire and distance, pleasure and disappointment, secrets and surprise, “Looking for ‘Looking for Langston’” is a cruise of poetic correspondence, queering sailors and transgressing horizons.
