Dir: Patrik-Ian Polk, USA, 2000, 104 mins
Celebrated for its candid and realistic depiction of African-American gay men, the groundbreaking PUNKS premiered at Sundance in 2000 and won awards on the film festival circuit before becoming mostly undistributed and unavailable to see anywhere.
Focusing on four friends navigating the dating world to find their mythical Mr. Rights, this vivacious debut film from writer-director Patrik-Ian Polk is an outrageously spirited ensemble comedy with verve and wit. Unprecedented in the way it captures black gay life and romance, PUNKS also explores universal aspects of friendship in dynamic and surprising ways.
Join the co-hosts of Nancy from WNYC Studios, Kathy Tu and Tobin Low, for a rare 35mm screening of this rediscovered gem of queer cinema!
