BORN IN FLAMES

January 2018

Grrrl Power Liverpool and Hannah Bitowski (formerly Queen of the Track) presented a screening of feminist sci-fi film Born in Flames as part of FACT's Refuge programme, in conjunction with the DON’T TOUCH ME safe spaces policy. 

Seminal film Born in Flames devises a dystopian, ‘liberated’ world led by the Social Labour Party that presents an all too familiar society of women as second class citizens. The collective and Bitowski invited audience members to discuss the sexist, racist and classist themes presented in the film, and from there how to move towards safer spaces and actioning intersectional feminism within our communities.
