Still from The Attendant (1993), by Isaac Julien

Yerba Buena Center presents the West Coast debut of new work by British filmmaker and YBCA Wattis Artist-in-Residence Isaac Julien. Incorporating themes of sexuality and race, Julien expands the conventional cinematic strategies of narrative and beauty to explore and subvert stereotypical portrayals of gay and black subjects. The 26th International San Francisco Lesbian & Gay Film Festival will be honoring Isaac Julien and his body of work during the June 13-30 2002 Festival. For more info, visit:
