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.
