Diddy Revisits Paris Is Burning With New Trailer

Submitted by on April 16, 2012 – 11:26 amNo Comment

You haven’t made it in hip-hop if Paris isn’t one of your favorite destinations and Sean “Diddy” Combs‘ love affair with the city has resulted in a new documentary.

Filmed during Paris Fashion Week by French director Julien Bachelet, the visuals are in black and white and follow Diddy as he moves from his opulent hotel room through a throng of paparazzi to catch runway shows, go shopping for Rolex’s, and of course, host packed nightclubs.

The concept for the original Paris Is Burning is a little different. The 1990 film chronicled the “ball” culture of New York City and the African American, Latino, gay and transgender communities involved in it. Many members of the ball culture community consider Paris Is Burning to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the “Golden Age” of New York City drag balls, as well as a thoughtful exploration of race, class, and gender in America.
