ABOUT THE FILM

A landmark of early 1980s American independent cinema, and made for only $40,000, Lizzie Borden’s BORN IN FLAMES is figuratively and literally an all-out attack on our patriarchal society, a call to arms for women everywhere. Set slightly in the future in a world largely resembling our own (or rather downtown NYC in the late 70s/early 80s), BORN IN FLAMES uses documentary techniques alongside invented narratives to tell the story of a feminist insurgency against the incumbent “Socialist Democratic” government. Featuring performances from Kathryn Bigelow, Adele Bertei, and Ron Vawter, and a fantastic theme song by The Red Krayola, BORN IN FLAMES examines the extremist agendas of two different feminist groups as they strategize, debate, take up arms, and form a true Women’s Army.
