  • Image preview 7:00pm - 9:00pm: E&D Film Screening & Discussion - Born in Flames
    Miller 105
    Is “the revolution” really so revolutionary if it ignores the concerns of poor women, queer people, and people of color? And what happens when the forgotten fight back? In grainy cinéma-vérité style, Lizzie Borden’s 1983 feminist sci-fi dystopian film Born in Flames asked these questions, at a moment when president Ronald Reagan promised “morning in America” while ushering in a culture war against society’s most marginalized. Featuring a DIY punk-rock soundtrack and aesthetic that influenced later waves of feminist musician-activists like Bikini Kill’s Kathleen Hanna, this “unruly, unclassifiable film,” as Village Voice writer Melissa Anderson has put it, “proves as bracing today as it was back when this country began its inexorable shift to the right.”

    Exploration & Discovery Professor Dr. Sara Appel will facilitate the conversation and provide opening remarks.
