Jennie Livingston: Paris Is Burning
1990, 71 min.
Language: english
Subtitles: -

Poignant, well-received documentary that reveals the community of New York's minority drag queens, gay black and Latino men who cross dress as women and invent the dance style of "voguing," imitating the fashion poses on the covers of the magazine Vogue. As director Jennie Livingston discovers, her subjects band together into family-like "houses" for protection, taking the same last names and competing in drag balls where awards are given out for authenticity or "realness," as well as other categories like "evening wear" and "executive wear."

We also encourage everyone to stay for a conversation after the screening with Forrei Krisztián DJ and editor of Recorder magazin, who recently wrote an article on the movie's soundtrack.

Feel free to join our group!
