Lizzie Borden

  • Cinema

An American director born in 1958 in Detroit, Lizzie Borden made her first feature-length film, Regrouping, in 1976. She paints an experimental portrait of a lesbian support group on the verge of collapse. 
Today, she’s mostly known for Born in Flames, which she directed in 1983: a cult feminist sci-fi film that continues, again and again, to inspire with its radical and uncompromising politics. Next, she directed Working Girls (1983), a fictional documentary immersing herself in a day in the life of sex workers on 24th Street in New York.
