CGiii Comment

"The Ball" takes you on an intimate journey into the underground ballroom culture created by marginalized LGBTQ people of color in early 1970s NYC. Thirty years after "Paris Is Burning," the ballroom is thriving worldwide, and "The Ball" gives you an in-depth perspective of courage in the face of adversity.

Narrated by the voice of ballroom icon Jack Mizrahi Gucci, featuring some of the ballroom's most influential and larger-than-life personalities (Kelly Gucci, Omari Oricci, Chi Chi West, Meah West, and Trace Gucci). Opening up about family rejection and acceptance, introducing the chosen family concept, its importance to the LGBTQ community, and its contribution to the entertainment industry.
