Wednesday 13 March 2019
7:30pm - 9:15pm
Film Unit Cinema in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium

Director: Lizzie Borden Cast: Honey, Adele Bertei Country: USA Language: English/French In a future time, after a Socialist revolution takes over the United States, a new government is implemented which supposedly deals with the issues of many marginalized groups. However, there are still major issues that plague the general populous, leading to a group of women forming a union to combat the remaining imbalance. A standout film in both indie and Feminist cinema, Born In Flames is an intellectually challenging story that, whilst classified as a Sci-Fi film, confronts political ideologies prevalent both whilst it was being made and today. For a thoughtful and complex cinematic experience, this film should be a must-watch.
