Born in Flames


In this searing speculative sci-fi about a United States in the not-too-distant future, a “progressive” leftist government has come to power, but sexism and classism remain the order of the day. Shot in a documentary style with a cast of non-actors, the film portrays women typically relegated to the fringes of mainstream media – single mothers, lesbians, and women of color – as powerful agents of radical social change. Director Lizzie Borden deftly calls attention to differences among women as she underscores issues of race, sexual orientation, and class that problematize feminism. Courtesy of First Run Features.
