Documentary Centerpiece
(Sweden, USA, 2016, 94 min)
Directed By: Sara Jordenö
Dazzling and exhilarating, this Sundance hit and Teddy-winning documentary returns us to a world we might think we know from the classic PARIS IS BURNING. Working closely with Twiggy Pucci Garçon of the Haus of Pucci) and her friends over a four-year period, Swedish filmmaker Sara Jordenö takes us into the shimmering community of Kiki, an offshoot of New York City's vibrant drag-ball scene. You'll meet activist and house mother Twiggy and her good friend ChiChi Mizrahi, who coach young performers (representing a vast array of the gender and sexual spectrum) as they face off in intense vogueing competitions. Kiki also offers these kids a place to find family in a world that can be challenging for LGBT people of color. The festivities for KIKI will begin before the screening itself, so do not miss out. Arrive by 8pm to catch the stars of KIKI performing a vogueing battle/show with a DJ and commentator.
