  • Paris Is Burning

    1990. USA. Directed by Jennie Livingston. With Pepper Lebeija, Willi Ninja, Octavia Saint Laurent, Venus Xtravaganza. An intimate exploration of the fiercely competitive, wildly creative, and outlandishly extravagant world of Harlem drag balls. Outweek writes, “Paris Is Burning is that rare find: a documentary that combines drama, sociology, culture, and history into a powerful, passionate, and entertaining package.... A younger generation of gay black men have transformed their oppressive reality into an intricate world of glamour and fantasy.” Winner of the 1990 L.A. Film Critics’ Award for the Best Documentary and co-winner for Best Documentary at the 1991 Sundance Film Festival. 78 min.
