KIKI on DVD from IFC!

The "Kiki" scene in New York City is a safe space for performance by LGBTQ youth of color, and the new film KIKI celebrates this vibrant and entertaining movement. The universally hailed film comes to DVD from IFC Films on August 22, 2017.

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.

Granted intimate access to the scene, filmmaker Sara Jordenö introduces viewers to some of Kiki culture's most prominent personalities, going beyond the glamour of the balls to highlight the serious challenges facing queer black and Latino young people. Bringing together heartrending personal stories with incredible displays of creative expression, KIKI is "an indelible, must-see ode to gay New York" (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times).

The 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.

Lauren Wissot, writing in Filmmaker magazine, called KIKI "artistic and thought-provoking. ... Paris Is Burning for the millennial set." "Proud, loud, funny, energetic and entertaining," said Fionnuala Halligan of Screen Daily. "Wonderfully alive and emotional," praised the Los Angeles Times' Kevin Turan. Writing in The New York Times, Glenn Kenny said, "KIKI shows us a group of brave and beautiful souls." Jordan Hoffman of amNewYork said the film "positively sparkles in every sequence."
