Wu Tsang live via Skype!
- 2012, Wu Tsang, USA, 75 min.
Rooted in the tropical underground of Los Angeles nightlife, magical realism meets documentary in Wu Tsang’s WILDNESS (2012), a portrait of LA’s Silver Platter, a landmark bar that has been home to Latin/LGBT immigrant communities since the ‘60s. Narrated from the perspective of the bar itself, the film meditates on the new relationships and conflicts that materialize as a group of young artists (DJs Total Freedom & NGUZUNGUZU) begins a weekly performance and dance party at Silver Platter. Tsang illuminates how difference can be a catalyst for both strife and growth as the party’s growing popularity raises issues of safety and belonging for all of its members. HDCAM video.
