SYNOPSIS

In near-future New York, 10 years after the “social-democratic war of liberation,” diverse groups of women organize a feminist uprising as equality remains unfulfilled. Preserved by Anthology Film Archives with restoration funding from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association & The Film Foundation.

PROGRAM NOTE

Born in Flames begins the story with two pirate radios and a female black activist in an imagined time of ten years after the Revolution. Official speeches on television speak of “equality” and “freedom,” but women find it difficult to agree. Outside mainstream media, on one side, is Radio Ragazza, hosted by white punk lesbians, and on the other side, Phoenix Radio, led by black women. Women of different classes and identities express different feminist perspectives on a society dominated by class work, sexism, and racism. Women are divided into radical and liberal positions on protest and resistance. The voice towards the radio listeners is deflected into the voice directed to the movie's audience, along with the close-up of the radio host staring beyond the screen while being overlapped with the sci-fi-like social image portrayed in various forms. The women's messages, which differentiate and intersect while chasing the end of the fight, intersect with today's point of view. The messages are like a reborn phoenix moving toward the next time in a circular, repeated rhythm. The end of the fight for the future leads to solidarity and resistance. The scene of the radical battle evokes an unintentional thrill. [LEE Sang-hee]
