OsFF2020 Documentary Showcase: FABULOUS

French Guianan dancer Lasseindra learned voguing, runway walking, and body-dropping dance battling from her found family in New York City’s underground before moving to Paris to foster the French ballroom scene. In this documentary addressing overlapping struggles regarding race, religion, culture, and queerness, director Audrey Jean-Baptiste captures Lasseindra’s return to her rigidly gendered home country, where she teaches voguing workshops to LGBTQ+ youth.
