Guest of Honour - Lizzie Borden

We are thrilled to welcome the director, writer and editor Lizzie Borden, as part of the Film and History program : 1980s America and counterculture.

Her film Born in flames (1983), named a "feminist masterpiece" by many critics around the world, will be screened next to Working Girls (1986), a controversial fiction about sex trade workers in Manhattan and Regrouping (1976), a "combative, entropic and mesmerizing" experimental documentary about women's groups. 

This practically unprecedented subversive trilogy will be supported by Lizzie Borden on monday 21 and tuesday 22. 

This year, Film and History explores various perspectives on minority representation in the US, meeting female directors who filmed outsiders in the heart of 1980s America. Lizzie Borden, Kathleen Collins, Vivienne Dick, Bette Gordon, Penelope Spheeris, etc. As an extensive counterculture lecture, rediscover the names that will guide you through a vibrant era of independent filmmaking.
