Director Jennie Livingston will present her groundbreaking 1990 documentary Paris Is Burning. Filmed during the mid-to-late 1980s, this intimate portrait of the Harlem drag balls was a winner of the Sundance Grand Jury Prize. Time magazine called it “one of the most influential cultural works to come out of New York City in 40 years.” After the screening, Livingston will discuss the film with Michelle Handelman, associate professor of Film, Media, and Performing Arts, and there will be a Q&A. The film is also being shown as part of the Film and Media program’s monthly screening series.
