VOGUE: Life On The Dancefloor

This short, 11 minute doc is awesome, and gives a good picture of where voguing, and ballroom culture is at in 2013 (or rather 2011, when it was made). It was produced by, and focusses on, Dashaun Wesley Evisu, legendary voguer and founder member of Vogue Evolution off US TV. It features some ace dancing footage from House Of Evisu in black and white, and Vogue Knights at Club Escualita. If there was more money this could easily be its own feature.

Vogue: Life On The Dancfloor is highly recommended viewing for anyone interested in gay/black/trans*/dance/house culture - while Paris Is Burning is a very important document, it is not the be all and end all of vogue culture, and anyone who has seen it needs to watch this too.
