Kiki

Screenings

2017 Season
Chicago

Through a strikingly intimate and visually daring lens, Kiki offers a riveting, complex insight into a safe space created and governed by LGBTQ youths of color, who demand happiness and political power. The film is an exciting coming-of-age story that celebrates agency, resilience, and the transformative art form of voguing.
