Even if there's a new face in the White House, things are still f*cked up. Lots and lots of folks need help. So, here on Clinton Corner, we're doing our bit to make things better.

Every Monday night, come to the Clinton Street Theater, enjoy a film on the big screen (the way it should be seen!), make friends, have a few laughs, scream, cry and raise money for a good cause.

Clinton St. Resistance presents BORN IN FLAMES


Monday, Jul 5

It's a heady time capsule and a corrective to the formal timidity of recent political cinema, even if the film's radical vision seems to uncomfortably presage the subsequent fragmentation of the left.

Joshua Land, Village Voice

With Borden's work is thoughtful agitprop born of an unfortunately enduring urgency, an electrifying sonic and visual collage that reminds us that continuously fanning the flames of revolution is what keeps them alive.

Yasmina Price, New York Magazine/Vulture

Borden artfully combines social and political commentary with story elements, character development, and enough ideological savvy to poke intelligent fun at dogmas of every stripe.

David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor

Set ten years after the most peaceful revolution in United States history, a revolution in which a socialist government gains power, this films presents a dystopia in which the issues of many progressive groups - minorities, liberals, gay rights organizations, feminists - are ostensibly dealt with by the government, and yet there are still problems with jobs, with gender issues, with governmental preference and violence. In New York City, in this future time, a group of women decide to organize and mobilize, to take the revolution farther than any man - and many women - ever imagined in their lifetimes.
