Re-release of Jennie Livingston's acclaimed 1990 documentary, which delves into the transvestite subculture of 1980s New York - the so-called "drag balls" - where colourful characters such as Dorian Corey, Anji Xtravaganza, Pepper LaBeija and Willi Ninja hold court. Capturing the vibrant energy and rituals of the underground community, Paris Is Burning pays tribute to a world of music and self-expression far removed from the mainstream.
