Join us as community programming partner Monkeypaw Productions continues its series Afro-Futurism in Cinema with this screening of Born in Flames.

With a radical and ecstatic mixture of guerilla filmmaking, agitprop, and retro-futurism, Lizzie Borden’s Born in Flames remains an unflinchingly queer and feminist landmark in low-budget cinema. In a near-future New York City, a decade after the “social-democratic war of liberation,” diverse groups of women organize a feminist uprising through direct action and a hint of terrorism. With a standout performance from radical feminist, attorney, and activist Flo Kennedy and cameos from Kathryn Bigelow and Eric Bogosian (in his screen debut). As entertaining as it is necessary, Born in Flames will birth the spirit of radical activism in you!
