Paris Is Burning (1990)

USA | 71 min | R | DVD | Dir. Jennie Livingston

Directed by Jennie Livingston, Paris is Burning, is an iconic documentary chronicling an intimate portrait of the Harlem drag ballroom scene, where rival fashion “houses” compete for trophies and cash prizes in categories like “face,” “femme queen realness” and "voguing." Winner of a Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Paris is Burning celebrates how one group of New Yorkers, for whom racism, poverty, and homophobia are all too real, create a world of sustenance and joy while shedding light on an intersection of the Black LGBT Community.
