Deep In Vogue (2019)
1h 2m / Not Rated / Documentary NOW AVAILABLE TO STREAM AT HOME!
A film about Northern Vogue and its people. Deep In Vogue celebrates the colorful, queer, emotional and political stories of Northern Vogue and its people. Synonymous with the black, gay ballrooms of 1980s New York, this documentary asks why we need Vogue in Manchester now more than ever.
Over the course of a year, filmmakers Dennis Keighron-Foster and Amy Watson charted the build-up to the Manchester ICONS Vogue Ball. Exploring themes from the internal politics of Vogue to its external politics like disenfranchisement of black youth, LGBT issues, a shrinking welfare state, a dearth of art spaces and modes of expression, a reductive and commercialized gay scene and a lack of safe spaces for the truly different. Deep In Vogue is about people coming to love and accept themselves, finding a new family through vogue. The film explores the history of vogue and ballroom, in which Black and Latinx gay men and trans people sought an aspirational artistic outlet in the 1980s, in much the same way that gay, queer, trans and QTIPOC people seek a safe space today.
