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, Lizzie Borden’s 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 guerrilla style on the streets of 1980s Manhattan, Born in Flames immortalizes the era's aesthetically and politically radical downtown scene.

Preserved by Anthology Film Archives with restoration funding from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and The Film Foundation
