      Scarecrow Video presents PARIS IS BURNING

      ** This screening is exclusively for all current Grand Illusion Cinema members and Scarecrow Video members. ** Where does voguing come from, and what, exactly, is throwing shade? This landmark documentary provides a vibrant snapshot of the 1980s through the eyes of New York Citys African American and Latinx Harlem drag-ball scene. Made over seven years, Paris Is Burning offers an intimate portrait of rival fashion houses, from fierce contests for trophies to house mothers offering sustenance in a world rampant with homophobia, transphobia, racism, AIDS, and poverty. Featuring legendary voguers, drag queens, and trans womenincluding Willi Ninja, Pepper LaBeija, Dorian Corey, and Venus XtravaganzaParis Is Burning brings it, celebrating the joy of movement, the force of eloquence, and the draw of community. Paris Is Burning was restored by the UCLA Film & Television Archive in conjunction with Sundance Institute and Outfest UCLA Legacy Project. Preservation was funded by Sundance Institute, Outfest, and the Andrew J. Kuehn Jr. Foundation.
