Paris is Burning
Paris Is Burning is a 1990 documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the various ethnicities, including African American, Latino gay and transgender community involved in it. Many consider Paris Is Burning to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the „Golden Age“ of New York City drag balls, as well as a thoughtful exploration of race, class, and gender in America.
