PARIS IS BURNING (1990)
The film explores the 'Houses' of the New York neighborhood of Harlem in the late 80's. A 'House' is a society of gays and drag queens (drag queen in the New York sense of the term that includes transvestites), which is shaped like Gang. The 'Houses' are formed by a 'mother' or mother and the 'children', sons and daughters, the function of the mother is to preside over society and advise and look after its members. The 'Balls' are the dances organized by the 'Houses' in the 'Ballrooms' (literally dance halls) that become a kind of club to meet and compete with each other. "Paris is burning" reflects the phenomenon of the 'balls' from 1987 to 1989 when it has already attracted the attention of the media and the cultural industries perceive benefits from what is suddenly the new fashion.
