Born in Flames Screening
August 25 (7pm)
Celebrate the launch of FAG Satellite @ Access with a screening of the cult classic 1983 feminist science fiction by director Lizzie Borden in all its 16mm glory. The film will be introduced by FAG Co-founders Deirdre Logue and Allyson Mitchell.
‘Born in Flames poses the question of whether oppression against women will be eliminated under any kind of social system. […] It is a fantasy presenting a group of women who, confronted with the very “ordinary” oppression women have been experiencing for decades, refuse to take it any longer and become armed fighters against the government. Their position is that oppression against women is not eliminated automatically with “socialism” – not only do political values have to change, cultural values must change and become embedded in practice.’ — Lizzie Borden in Heresies #16, 1983
