Teknowomen: Born in Flames

30th November, 2014 at 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

£8

borninflamesIn the near future, the United States is celebrating the 10th anniversary of a socialist revolution that has changed the fabric of the country. However, some are left disenchanted with the new order – justice and equality are still not forthcoming for women. Blue-collar worker Adelaide Norris starts a revolution, leading a feminist vigilante group onto the streets.

Preceded by short film Unfinished Conversation (Derica Shields, 2013) (8m).

Rosie Lewis from The Angelou Centre and Cloudberry MacLean from Digital Desperados will take part in a post-screening discussion on feminist experimental filmmaking.

Booking

Teknowomen

Sci-fi explores our hopes and fears for tomorrow’s world, makes contact with the Cosmos, and takes us on a fantastical journey to the limits of our humanity. We have teamed up with Glasgow Film Theatre (GFT) to bring you Teknowomen, a season of film that charts the depiction of women in Science Fiction, from silent classic Woman in the Moon through to 1980s feminist titles right up to more recent films. Part of the BFI Sci-Fi season Days of Fear and Wonder and presented in partnership with Film Hub Scotland, the season will feature a fascinating selection of fiction and documentary, and guest appearances from Scottish writers and thinkers with an interest in the genre.
