Celebrate Brooklyn!: Paris Is Burning

Friday, June 26 , 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm, 2015

Paris is Burning will be screened at the Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn!, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website

PARIS IS BURNING, Jennie Livingston’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary, is an intimate and moving portrait of the Harlem drag balls of the 1980s which were held between rival “houses” that served at once as intentional families, social groups, and performance teams. The film illuminated a world of sustenance and joy that one group of New Yorkers created in the face of racism, poverty, transphobia and homophobia and won wide acclaim beyond Sundance. It also spurred both controversy and progress, and 24 years later remains a unique and powerful document of its time that is still an organizing tool for gay and trans youth; a focus of scholarship on issues of race, class, and gender; and a way for young ball participants to meet their ancestors.

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
