Burn baby burn!

This week CP Concordia wrapped up another semester and another year of awesome political doc screenings. And what a wrap it was! For the special occasion we screened the queer classic PARIS IS BURNING (Jennie Livingston/US/1990) to a packed house (we unfortunately had to turn away some).

The screening was introduced by professor Tom Waugh (who is on the CP Board of Directors) and was book-ended by an incredible performance by Kama Le Mackerel, who schooled the audience on the ten rules of PARIS IS BURNING, and a launch of the new book Paris is Burning by Lucas Hilderbrand, who gave a talk and signed books at the wine and cheese that followed.

It was a simply awesome event, put on by CP Concordia, the Mel Hoppeneheim School of Cinema, and the House of Waugh.
