Burn the House Down


Although Kiddy Smile is an immigrant from Cameroon who grew up in a poor suburb, he has managed to play at a concert for the elite and for President Macron himself. His DJing and producing career is getting started, but the issues of skin color and sexual orientation persist in French society. Kiddy Smile and his unique troupe of dancers are not afraid, however. They speak openly about sensitive topics and dance with all the more pride. After all, vogue and ballroom were invented for minorities and the forsaken. Directors Giselle Bailey and Nneka Onuorah head to the changing rooms as well as to parties, depicting the dance scene of the immigrant queer community in Paris that will not shy away from any topic and won't stop moving. Enjoy this documentary ride full of music and dance, as extravagant as the vogue moves.
