KIKI at Outfest Los Angeles

Pre-Screening Vogueing Lesson & Contest!

The Cinefamily is proud to present this screening as a Community Collaborator with Outfest Los Angeles. Screening will take place at the Ford Theatres at 2580 Cahuenga Blvd E, 90068

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. Make sure to arrive before the screening and bring your best moves to the Ford where the stars of Kiki will conduct a vogue tutorial for the whole audience with live DJ. We’ll be awarding prizes to the fiercest dancers!
