Official trailer for Black high school prom documentary “Midnight in Paris”





An exuberant portrait of adolescence on the verge of adulthood, Midnight in Paris follows a small group of teenagers in Flint, Michigan, during the lead-up to their senior prom—an event that has transcended the typical black-tie affair and become a rare communal opportunity to celebrate the achievements of its youth. The film looks at the significance of the dance in the lives of Flint’s youth, the preparation and effort involved in participating, and the precarious juncture between expectation and reality. The students’ humor, style, and love, are seen in stark contrast to what the former automotive boom-town is more typically and tragically known for, beyond its city limits.

Available on demand from October 23-29 on NYC theater Metrograph's “Live Screenings” program. For more details, click here for more details.
