  • This collaborative Film explores issues of racism and homophobia through a surreal narrative film structured through metaphors and vignettes where the roles are played by people from queer and racialized communities in North Carolina. The film interconnects both the civil rights movement and current queer issues through the writings, love letters,interviews and speeches of the lost prophet, Bayard Rustin. Some of the topics include the history of segregation, the Woolworth Sit-Ins , the Jim Crow laws, The Greensboro Four, Amendment 1, and the repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell law. This is the result of a residency by Emilio Rojas and Jeremy Harris at Elsewhere Museum, in Greensboro, North Carolina that attempted to collectively generate a creative space for reflecting on these vital issues.
