BORN IN FLAMES with filmmaker Lizzie Borden Thursday, February 27, 2014 7:00 PM, Chase Auditorium US, 1983, 80 min. The movie that rocked the foundations of the early Indie film world, this provocative, thrilling and still-relevant classic is a comic fantasy of female rebellion set in America ten years after the Second American Revolution. When Adelaide Norris, the black radical founder of the Woman's
Army, is mysteriously killed, a diverse coalition of women - across all lines of race, class, and sexual preference - emerges to blow the System apart. The film that heralded the arrival of Queer Cinema is also a who's who of the New York radical/performance scene, with a cast that includes the late Ron Vawter, and a very young Kathryn Bigelow.*

*Andy Cornell (Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow) and Ellie Shenker will host an after party with filmmaker Lizzie Borden and curator Natalie Musteata at their home: 2 College Circle. All members of the Haverford community are
invited.
