NYWIFT Co-Presents Born in Flames with NewFest

NYWIFT is proud to co-present the NewFest screening of Born in Flames as part of NewFest's Queering the Canon Series. An underground feminist landmark of cinema, Lizzie Borden’s Born in Flames (1983) is brazenly queer, and unapologetically down to disrupt and dismantle the patriarchy. Set in a near future downtown New York ten years after a socialist revolution, radical feminist factions strategize and debate their own agendas as women’s equality remains unfulfilled. With guerilla style filming and a docu-narrative approach, the pulsing energy of NYC and layered political viewpoints might just have you ready to start your own radical queer biker gang. In-person tickets include a guest introduction by Jessica Dunn Rovinelli.
