Harlem Pride Presents: 

Sara Jordenö, 2016, 96 min
In this film collaboration between Kiki gatekeeper, Twiggy Pucci Garçon, and Swedish filmmaker Sara Jordenö, viewers are granted exclusive access into this high-stakes world, where fierce Ballroom competitions serve as a gateway into conversations surrounding Black-and Trans-Lives Matter movements. This new generation of Ballroom youth use the motto, “Not About Us Without Us,” and KIKI in kind has been made with extensive support and trust from the community, including an exhilarating score by renowned Ballroom and Voguing Producer Collective Qween Beat. Twiggy and Sara’s insider-outsider approach to their stories breathes fresh life into the representation of a marginalized community who demand visibility and real political power. 

Q&A with director Sara Jordenö, Kiki stars Chi Chi Mizrahi and Chris Waldorf and moderated by Dave Bridgeforth, followed by a reception hosted by Harlem Pride.
