Los Angeles Restoration Premiere. Post-screening conversation with filmmaker Lizzie Borden moderated by Zackary Drucker.

Los Angeles Restoration Premiere  
In person: Lizzie Borden. 

For her staunchly independent, radically feminist feature debut, independent filmmaker Lizzie Borden (Working Girls, Born in Flames) constructs a rich docu-fictional experiment with the members of a woman’s group, testing the limits of community and interrogating filmmaking as an art practice in the process. When the film premiered at the Edinburgh Festival in 1976, it was one of just a handful of pictures in the program made by women. Finally restored to 16mm by Anthology Film Archives after decades of inaccessibility, Borden’s daring, original piece adds another fascinating page to the rich history of feminist films made across the globe in the 1970s.
