“Brash and empowering… it explodes with energy.”
—Variety

In this kaleidoscopic profile of New York City’s youngest generation of voguers, Swedish filmmaker Jordenö and queer community leader Twiggy Pucci Garçon join forces to showcase vogue’s unabated vitality as a dance form. Offering a behind-the-scenes look at this underground culture and its various rival collectives, including the Opulent Haus of Pucci and the House of Unbothered Cartier, Kiki moves beyond the flashing lights and extravagant styles to grapple with the injustices faced disproportionately by LGBT youth of color. Assembled from four years’ worth of footage, this winner of the Berlinale Teddy Award is an inspiring tribute to a world in which fierce talent and tireless activism go hand in hand.

Film begins at sundown. Music provided by DJ MikeQ.
