Drag-Queens à New York. Du théâtre plus vrai que la vie, des déguisements qui montrent bien que l’habit fait le moine. Ils s’appellent Les Enfants. Dans la vie, ils sont prostitués,coursiers, représentants. Dans les bals de Harlem, ils sont Krystle et Blake Carrington de la série  » Dynasty « . Leur réalité quotidienne est faite de discrimination et de pauvreté. Mais en se déguisant, à travers la dance et leurs performances, les gays noirs et hispaniques de Paris is Burning transcendent un monde et des images qui les excluent.

Paris is Burning
Paris Is Burning is a 1990 documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the poor, African American and Latino gay and transgendered community involved in it. Many consider Paris Is Burning to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the « Golden Age » of New York City drag balls, as well as a thoughtful exploration of race, class, and gender in America.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The Christian Film and Television Commission called for « all moral Americans » to boycott Jennie Livingston’s « Paris is Burning, » charging that it was a « homosexual propaganda film. » Livingston received grants from Art Matters, Inc., the New York State Council on the Arts, and the NEA film and video program.
