PARIS IS BURNING (1991) One sheet poster


New York]: Prestige, 1991. Vintage original 41 x 27″ (104 x 69 cm.) one sheet poster, unfolded, fine.

An immaculate example of the theatrical poster for this now classic documentary by Jennie Livingston.

“Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African-American, Latino, gay, and transgender communities involved in it. Critics consider the film to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the ‘Golden Age’ of New York City drag balls, and a thoughtful exploration of race, class, gender, and sexuality in America.

“In 2016, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being ‘culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant’.” (Wikipedia)
