Born in Flames
1983, Not rated, 90 min. Directed by Lizzie Borden. Starring Honey, Jeanne Satterfield, Adele Bertai, Becky Johnson, Pat Murphy, Florence Kennedy and Kathy Bigelow.
Cherry Bomb: The setting is the future: New York City, 10 years after the Social Democratic War of Liberation. With sexual oppression the norm, women in this post-revolutionary world still face the same old problems of how to create a social structure that is responsive to their needs and goals. Beautifully made, courageously edited, and swift-moving, this challenging, provocative film is a work that is both humanist and revolutionary.
