Culture & Communication
Paris is Burning, explores issues of race, class, gender and homophobia while offering a detailed examination of New York City’s intricate Ball culture, in which participants are judged for their style and etiquette is stripped from the environment as viewers are encouraged to interact with the screen. Talking, expression.
In this screening of Jennie Livingston’s acclaimed documentary, proper cinema watching singing, dancing (voguing) and other forms of engagement are expected from the audience while simultaneously viewing the film. This experience aims to generate an immediate response and encourage dialogue and interaction around the themes that are raised in the film.
