A sweet, soulful documentary that immerses the viewer in the world of drag balls - a vibrant New York demimonde that thrived at the end of the 80s and inspired Madonna's Vogue. The troupe of dreamers and outsiders who star in this legendary film are the most complex and colourful characters you'll see on screen all year, and Paris is Burning captures all their rituals, rivalries and routines.
Dir Jennie Livingston, USA/UK 1990, 71 mins
