Film Screening: ‘Paris is Burning’

Thursday, November 1, 2018,6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

The Queer of Color Critique tutorial will be screening movies throughout the semester to go alongside readings about queer identity among people of color.

“Paris is Burning” is a 1990 American documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African-American, Latino, gay, and transgender communities involved in it. Some critics consider the film to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the “Golden Age” of New York City drag balls, and a thoughtful exploration of race, class, gender, and sexuality in America.

The movie will be followed by a brief discussion with students in the Queer of Color Critique tutorial.
