Movie Screening: Born in Flames on Thurs June 12 @7PM, the base in Brooklyn

We in Florence Johnston Collective love the 1983 film Born in Flames because of its complex treatment of politics in society!  A “science fiction” film based ten years after a “social democratic revolution”, the film portrays two organizations of women struggling in a world that despite a “revolutionary” government, still faces exploitation, wage labor, sexism, rape, racism, homophobia, and state repression.  The film raises a lot of great questions about state led vs. grassroots led political movements, and about the possibilities for liberation in a world that is still dominated by class divisions along race and gender lines.

We hope to see you there!

    hey! i just left this question in the fb page, but i’m wondering if the screening is starting exactly at 7pm. i can’t get there until 7:30 and wouldn’t want to disrupt by showing up late.

      yes! You should still come (as should anyone who cannot make it until later). We will have a short intro and likely begin around 7:30. But even if it looks like we have started please do come in. We know people have busy work schedules, and the most important thing is to get everyone together. No one turned away.
