Born in Flames

Film, Science fiction

Time Out says

'The right to violence is like the right to pee: you've gotta have the right place and the right time'. The time: the near future. The place: New York, ten years after a peaceful revolution has recreated all men equal. All men, leaving the women to mouth their discontent: like Adele (Satterfield) as a member of the militant women's army; like Honey, beautiful and black, presenter for the pirate Phoenix radio; or Isabel (Bertei), who performs nightly on Radio Ragazza. Borden charts the explosive coming together of the women as they forge their own liberation, handling her story with audacity and making even the driest argument crackle with humour, while the more poignant moments burn with a fierce white heat.
