In celebration of Pride Month, the Beijing American Center proudly presents the film “Paris Is Burning,” an award-winning documentary about drag queen culture in New York City in the 1980s. This is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at a group of people who were ostracized by society, and therefore built an underground community through fashion and modeling competitions. If you are curious about what New York City queer culture was like in the late 1980s, this movie will show you how people with different gender identities created unique ways to express themselves.
An American Embassy officer will introduce the film and answer questions about it after the screening. Popcorn will be provided. This movie won several awards, including a Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, and it was named one of 1991’s best films by the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, National Public Radio, Time Magazine, and others.
