Paris is Burning

June 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$7 – $10

Paris is Burning (1990) depicts a New York fashion subculture. Shot in the late 1980s by Jennie Livingston, the documentary examines how a community of Black and Latino gay and transgender New Yorkers build sustenance, creativity, and family. Exploring ballroom culture – and defining and re-defining words like “house,” “mother,” “shade” “voguing” and “Realness” – Paris is Burning draws a series of incisive character portraits. The movie writes a complex essay on class, race, identity, and the transformative powers of dance and performance.

It is part of The Smith’s FLX Pride Weekend celebration.
