Film Screening: Born in Flames

  • Mayday Space 176 Saint Nicholas Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11237 United States (map)

Born in Flames (1983, Lizzie Borden)


Energetic, raw and raucous, this documentary-like film depicts a series of encounters that portray the multiplicity and diversity of womanhood. The film showcases the daily harassment, violence, sexism, and oppression that women endure, as well as ways in which they organize to defend each other and fight back.
