Jennie Livingston directs Dorian Corey, Pepper LaBeija and Venus Xtravaganza in this documentary capturing the Ball culture of New York and the dispossessed gay and transgendered communities that it was a hub for.
One of the best documentaries ever made. Immersive, frank and unromantic. You feel like you have had an education of the aesthetic, tragedies and victories of a subculture by the end. This is exactly what I want from this kind of experience. Funny too.
