Q&A with special guest, co-writer & performer, Twiggy Pucci Garçon
We are pleased to be partnering with Document Film Festival ♥ & this screening is part of their programme.
Follows young members of the predominantly black contemporary ballroom scene in NYC. Dancing! On the pier, the subway, community halls and culminating in the large scale ball nights where different houses come together to compete and celebrate. Against formidable odds queer youth create their own communities and family and organise to have each other’s backs.
Often whilst still teenagers themselves young people become house mothers and fathers, guiding all their group members not only to excel on the dance floor but to gain self love and become conscious community members. In a significant break from the approach of Paris is Burning this film, whilst still directed by a white director, gives greater scope for understanding by centering the political insights of the films subjects.
