Out This Week: Deep in Vogue

Deep in Vogue celebrates the colorful, queer, emotional and political stories of Northern Vogue in Manchester, UK and the black, gay ballrooms of 1980s New York City.

The documentary had its premiere in the United Kingdom at BFI Flare and its United States premiere at NewFest NYC. Over the course of a year, filmmakers Dennis Keighron-Foster and Amy Watson charted the buildup to the Manchester ICONS Vogue Ball and explored universal themes and the unique styles from both sides of the Atlantic including the (sometimes dramatic) internal politics of vogue to external politics including the disenfranchisement of black youth, LGBT issues, the dearth of art spaces and modes of expression, the over-commercialized gay scene, and the lack of safe spaces for the truly different.

This new film is an electric, informative, and entertaining celebration of people coming to love and accept themselves, finding a new family through vogue.
