The men disaffected by the turbulence of the 1980s place themselves at the forefront of black liberation, embodying their authoritative traditional gender roles to dictate a vision for the future. Feminist Maggie Baptiste and her friend Gary (Chance), a gay black man, are youthful advocates who reject marginalisation. Punctuating dream sequences, featuring dual narrators, explore these conflicts. Vividly restored by the BFI in 4K and revived at the London Film Festival, this riveting allegory foreshadowed contemporary debates about intersectionality.
