Paris is Burning is a now classic documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston about the New York black drag scene in 1987.

The spectre of the AIDS epidemic and anti-gay violence are present throughout, but touches of lightness and comedy punctuated by the sheer beauty and energy of the subjects make this film unforgettable.
