Feminist Fightback Film Club: Born In Flames

September 19, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Made in 1983, ‘Born in Flames’ (dir. Lizzie Borden) is an incredible docu-drama/ sci fi film set in the future, ten years after a social democratic revolution which has established American Socialism.

However, Black and working-class women are not happy with this form of reformism and start arming themselves and forming the women’s army to bring about real revolutionary change (and beat up a few rapists on the way…).

It’s an incredible insight into the Women’s Liberation Movement at a moment of intense artistic and political creativity, while also providing fascinating footage of pre-gentrification New York.

Plus an ace soundtrack.

£2.50 donation (free for unwaged)

Open to all genders and none.
