Born and raised in Switzerland, Susanne Bartsch moved to the United States and reinvented herself as a legendary party girl “Queen of the Night” at the height of New York’s 1980s club scene. “Susanne Bartsch picked up where Warhol left off,” says RuPaul. The doyenne of NYC nightlife for decades, and still at it, she stirs together the art, fashion, and gay dance-club worlds to create extravagant spectacles. The film follows Bartsch’s (now in her early 60s) unconventional life as she plans a showstopping party and takes stock of her life.
