PARIS IS BURNING (1990 – dir. Jennie Livingston)
Practice your vogueing and polish off that butch realness because Paris Is Burning will be the premiere of Scalarama 2016!
‘Paris is Burning depicts ballroom culture in 1980’s New York. The film looks at how a community of Black and Latino gay and transgender New Yorkers build sustenance, creativity and family. It draws a series of incisive character portraits, writing a complex essay on class, race, identity, and the transformative powers of dance and performance. The screening will be accompanied by a special live performance.
Part of the Liverpool Biennial 2016 Film Programme Another Version of Events.
Another Version of Events is the official Liverpool Biennial 2016 film programme. A selection of films influenced by genres including sci-fi, mockumentary, pseudo-documentary, mockbuster and ethnofiction is being screened every week throughout the Biennial.
After the film, there will also be a screening of Raphael Hefti’s An Aluminothermic Reaction Producing Liquid Steel, Filmed at 2000 Frames per Second (2016). The film is is a new artwork by Hefti, that continues his experiments in thermite welding – an engineering process devised in 1893, still used in the assembly of high-speed railway tracks today. Over the course of two weeks in May 2016, the artist transported nearly 100 tonnes of sand to the former construction site of the Pullman Hotel, transforming it into an outdoor studio and make-shift film set. The result is an intimate, near-hallucinatory work that oscillates between the industrial and the digital.’
