Born in Flames + Cornella: The Story of a Burning Bush
Born in Flames
Dir. by Lizzie Borden
With Honey, Adele Bertei and Jean Satterfield
90 min, 16mm

Set 10 years after the most peaceful revolution in United States history in which a socialist government gains power, "Born into Flames" presents a dystopia where the issues of many progressive groupsminorities, liberals, gay rights organizations, feministsare ostensibly dealt with by the government; yet there are still prevailing problems with jobs, injustice, and violence. In New York City, a group of women decide to organize and mobilize, to take the revolution farther than any manand many womenever imagined in their lifetimes.

Part-science fiction, part-feminist fable, "Born into Flames" captures No Wave Cinema's trademark mixture of progressive ideology, street-smart techniques, and social criticism to form an unforgettable narrative that still resonates almost 30 years later.

Renowned performance artist Kembra Pfahler's contribution to the 1980s downtown performance art movement is the stuff of legend.
