Paris Is Burning

Jennie Livingston USA, 1990

msmichel's rating of the film Paris brennt

Livingston's documentary was a cultural and critical sensation on release in '90 capitalizing on vogue and drag coming into the mainstream by zeroing in on gay black culture and the 'ballroom' competitions. ver 25 years later it stands as a highly influential document of its times that foreshadowed the continuing mainstreaming of its subject matter into popular culture. Poignant, powerful and somewhat heartbreaking
