Certainly better than its IMDb rating

This classic short poetry film is on the subject of gay African American issues of the day, and is still relevant today.

It addresses macho culture, being out, HIV/AIDS, and same-sex marriage, to name a few topics, and you don't have to be a US or black person to relate to it.

I'm not a poet, but my layman's assessment is that the poetry is of high quality, yet accessible to average people. The film also contains music and dance, and flag imagery to tie it together.

I'm shocked that so few people have seen this important short, and fewer still have appreciated it.
