Paris Is Burning

Jennie Livingston USA, 1990

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Paris brennt

A rather tragic view of lives trapped in rarefied opportunities to step-out amid a closed societal atmosphere of institutional protocol and vernacular. Beyond the outre, it's not an uncommon story for many of any race or sexuality, ill-afforded by situation and ambition - or lack of. A good example of diegetic documentary casting a passive eye cast on the seemingly outlandish revealing the human fragility underneath.
