Set on the streets of New York City— 10 years after “The Second American Revolution”—when promises of equality have not been fulfilled and where patriarchal systems of power continue to dominate everyday life, a diverse range of female-run independence groups take over underground and mainstream media to advocate for social change. Lizzie Borden’s feminist, queer, post-punk, science-fiction, indie, cult-classic comedy Born in Flames reminds viewers of the power of working together to fight for justice. Preserved by Anthology Film Archives with restoration funding from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and The Film Foundation. This screening is dedicated to the memory of Professor Alex Doty, who identified Born in Flames as the key Feminist film of the 1980s. Contains mature content.
