Doc Trailers: ‘Paris is Burning’

Revisit a queer classic for Pride Month with Jennie Livingston’s 1990 landmark Paris is Burning. The doc comes to theatres this week in a meticulous digital restoration supervised by Livingston. The doc explores New York’s drag culture as members of the LGBTQ+ community thrive in a safe space where they can be free while throwing balls and voguing with peers who accept them and embrace them. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and Best Documentary honours from the New York Film Critics, LA Film Critics, and the National Society of Film Critics, Paris is Burning remains a landmark for its groundbreaking feats in representation.

Paris is Burning opens in select theatres beginning Monday, June 17.
