Film Screening “Paris is Burning”
FILM SCREENING IN THE GOAT BAR
From 7pm Wednesday 30th August
7 Union St, Reading
Join us for part of our Reading Pride Week celebrations. We’ll be watching 90’s classic Paris is Burning on the big projector screen in the bar…
Paris Is Burning is a 1990 American documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African-American, Latino, gay, and transgender communities involved in it.
Critics consider the film to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the “Golden Age” of New York City drag balls, and a thoughtful exploration of race, class, gender, and sexuality in America.
In 2016, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
The title takes its name from the Paris Is Burning ball held annually by artist Paris Dupree who appears in the film.
Come, sip a beer and watch with us! 🍻
