Directed by Lizzie Borden | 1983

With Honey, Adele Bertei, Flo Kennedy

Cut to the pulse-quickening beat of the Red Krayola's titular post-punk anthem, this ultra-queer, No Wave-meets-sci-fi polemic takes place in a future New York where, 10 years after a socialist revolution, diverse feminist factions—organized by rival pirate radio stations—come together to fight for their rights in a supposedly “utopian” society. Shot on the streets of 1980s Manhattan, Born in Flames immortalizes the era's aesthetically and politically radical downtown scene.

Q&A with director Lizzie Borden moderated by Racquel Gates, Assistant Professor of Cinema & Media Studies at the College of Staten Island, CUNY
