Film Series: Paris Is Burning

1990. USA. Dir. Jenny Livingston. Documentary. 71 min.

Take an intimate look into the drag ball culture of 1980s New York City and the magnetic individuals who shaped it. At once wildly exuberant and profoundly tragic, Paris illuminates not only in its depiction of gender performance, but in the roaring vitality of a marginalized community living in the midst of white, straight America.
