Screening of the film "Born in Flames" (1983) held in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery exhibition "if I can't dance to it, it's not my revolution."
Born in Flames (1983), a science fiction film infused with feminist politics and a documentary style, presents an alternative reality of a socialist-democratic US government that attempts to institute progressive politics, including minority issues, feminism, and queer rights. Despite this new government, racism and sexism remain prominent in American life. The film follows two different feminist organizations in New York City that attempt to combat the prejudices and oppression the government fails or neglects to address. The film is written, directed, and produced by filmmaker Lizze Borden, and won both the Reader Jury prize at the Berlin International Film Festival and the Grand Prix at the Créteil International Women’s Film Festival.
