Jennie Livingstons award-winning, critically-acclaimed documentary pays tribute to the vibrant subculture of New Yorks drag balls of the late 80s, an underground scene that famously became the inspiration for Madonnas Vogue. This is where it all began; in the community halls of Harlem where flamboyant characters belonging to rival houses gathered to compete on makeshift catwalks. Paris is Burning is an intimate portrait of a time, a place and a community of outsiders finding expression, strength and pride in a world of their own creating.
