Deep in Vogue
Dirs. Amy Watson & Dennis Keighron-Foster, UK, 2019, 61 mins
East Coast Premiere Inspired by the 80s ball scene in New York City–which was made iconic by the 1990 documentary PARIS IS BURNING–there’s a thriving Northern Vogue ball scene flourishing across the pond in Manchester, UK. This electrifying documentary celebrates the personal and political stories behind the thriving scene, and how we seek aspirational outlets, safe spaces, respect, and visibility in the face of marginalization. Meet the House Mothers and members who go to battle on the runway, all the while exploring personal and political issues. But no matter who takes the crown, DEEP IN VOGUE reminds us of the inherent joy within the freedom to express oneself fully. And turn some stunning looks while doing so.
Q&A with filmmakers and talent, moderated by special guest Twiggy Pucci Garçon (KIKI)
