Directed by Lizzie Borden | 1983

With Flo Kennedy, Kathryn Bigelow, Ron Vawter

“Anyone outside its target demographic of Trotskyite black lesbian separatists should avoid [Born in Flames] at all costs.”
—The Onion

Cut to the beat of the Red Krayola, Lizzie Borden’s no wave, lo-fi, sci-fi polemic announced a new type of queer cinema nearly a decade before the New Queer Cinema movement coalesced in the early 90s. Ten years after a socialist revolution, diverse feminist factions come together to fight for their rights in a society that calls itself a utopia while quietly maintaining the status quo. Shot in the rough and tumble New York of the 80s, Born in Flames captures an aesthetically and politically radical downtown scene.
