September 25: Paris is Burning
As part of this year’s Pridefest festivities, the McKinley Film Committee will host a free screening of Paris is Burning on Sunday, September 25 at 4 PM.
About the film:
Paris Is Burning is a 1990 American documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African-American, Latino, gay, and transgender communities involved in it. Critics consider the film to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the “Golden Age” of New York City drag balls, and a thoughtful exploration of race, class, gender, and sexuality in America.
