Born in Flames

DIRECTED BY - Lizzie Borden

This film has been named as one of the best American independent films ever made. Director, and lesbian feminist, Lizzie Borden, brings forth a vision of a dystopic futuristic society brought low by a group of women who topple the state-run media estate.Set in New York City, the story begins ten years after a revolution that has been won by socialists.The result is that most of the fringe radical movements, led by minorities, liberals, gay rights organizations, and feminists, are being made even more powerless by the new male dominant regime.This is when the group of women decides to mobilize and take the revolution forward beyond all expectations as they forge their own liberation.Among the group are the black and beautiful Honey, a presenter for the radio, and the vivacious Isabel (Adele Berti) who is also a performer for the metropolis's futuristic radio station.Look for director Kathryn Bigelow, director of BLUE STEEL and STRANGE DAYS who has a small role as the editor.
