This latest addition to the Queer Film Classics series pays homage to the award-winning 1991 documentary Paris Is Burning, which looks at the struggle of African-American and Latino participants in the 1980s New York drag ball scene. Capturing the energy, wit and diversity of a lively underground sub-culture, Jennie Livingston's film became a surprise hit upon its initial release. A key cultural text with stunning visuals and a strong moralistic tone, the film still resonates with audiences 20 years later, making this commententary a crucial companion.
