The “Kiki” scene in New York City is a safe space for performance by LGBTQ youth of color, and the documentary film Kiki celebrates this vibrant and entertaining movement.

More than 25 years after Paris Is Burning introduced the art of voguing to the world, the thrilling and eye-opening Kiki revisits New York City’s thriving underground ballroom scene. It’s a larger-than-life world in which LGBTQ youths of color are empowered by staging elaborate dance competitions that showcase their dynamic choreography, fabulous costumes and fierce attitude. It’s also a safe haven for struggling, at-risk teens who find acceptance, support and friendship within the Kiki community.

Directed by Sara Jordenö, the unrated IFC Films theatrical release won the prize as Best Documentary/Essay Film at the Berlin International Film Festival and was nominated for top prizes at the Independent Spirit Awards and the Sundance Film Festival.
