BORDEN, Lizzie; LASSINARO, Kaisa
Born in flames
Born in Flames – the publication – is the complete authorised graphic translation of Lizzie Borden’s mythical 1983 film ‘Born in Flames’ by graphic designer Kaisa Lassinaro.
Included is an interview with Borden conducted by Lassinaro, in which the filmmaker looks back on the making of her film.
"‘Born in Flames’ poses the question of whether oppression against women will be eliminated under any kind of social system... It is a fantasy presenting a group of women who, confronted with the very ‘ordinary’ opression women have been experiencing for decades, refuse to take it any longer and become armed fighters against the government." [Lizzie Borden in Heresies no.16,1983]
