Paris Is Burning

Revisit late 80s NY underground ball circuit with this beautifully restored documentary

The Rafael invites you to revisit the world of the late 1980s New York underground ball circuit with this beautiful restoration of Jennie Livingston’s ground-breaking 1990 documentary.

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Stonewall this year, the legendary children, upcoming legendary children, and divine mothers of Paris Is Burning invite you to revisit the world of the late 1980s New York underground ball circuit in this beautiful restoration of Jennie Livingston’s ground-breaking 1990 documentary.

This film introduced the world to vogueing, house culture, reading, shade, and a vibrant tapestry of charismatic drag queens, trans women, and queer street kids of color who infuse this landmark film with abundant glamor and palpable magic.

Director Jennie Livingston (US 1990) 78 min.
