Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway

201983 mins

Where does voguing come from, and what, precisely, is tossing conceal? This milestone narrative gives an energetic preview of the 1980s through the eyes of New York City’s African American and Latinx Harlem drag-ball scene. Made more than seven years, PARIS IS BURNING offers a close picture of opponent style “houses,” from savage challenges for prizes to house moms offering food in a world wild with homophobia, transphobia, bigotry, AIDS, and neediness. Highlighting amazing voguers, cross dressers, and trans ladies – including Willi Ninja, Pepper LaBeija, Dorian Corey, and Venus Xtravaganza – PARIS IS BURNING brings it, praising the delight of development, the power of expressiveness, and the draw of community.
