Film Screening & Conversation: PARIS IS BURNING Film Screening & Conversation: PARIS IS BURNING

Don’t miss our third and last film screening this year in cooperation with Kino in der Brotfabrik!

PARIS IS BURNING, a landmark documentary from 1990 by Jennie Livingston (USA).

Documenting the queer “Ballroom Culture” in New York City in the 1980s, this groundbreaking movie depicts Latinx and Black queer and transgender communities.

It explores their struggles with multiple forms of discrimination regarding their race, class, gender, sexual identity long before concepts such as gender fluidity or intersectionality were discussed in society.
Stay on after the screening and join the conversion and get-together with free drinks/nibbles!
BCDSS Professor Julia Hillner will give a short introduction on the BCDSS’ thematic year with a research focus on Gender (and Intersectionality).

Förderverein Filmkultur, the Queer-Referat (AStA Uni Bonn) and BCDSS Professor Pia Wiegmink will kickstart the post-screening conversation.
We will aim to keep the conversation to English, however feel free to contribute in German (or other languages)!
Please note that this time, cinema ticket fees apply (€9/€7).
20:00 Film Screening (English original voice with English subtitles)
21:30 Conversation and get-together with drinks/nibbles (at Studio 5)
