HOLY MOLY DOUBLE FEATURE! Lizzie Borden's "Born in Flames" will be playing with Kathryn Bigalow's "Strange Days" at The New Beverly tomorrow and Saturday night (May 10th and 11th)!

Lizzie Borden was THE FIRST to dive into the topics we are addressing today with passion and commitment in our storytelling. Let's CELEBRATE HER and this opportunity to have her work from 1983 shown AGAIN here in the city of our industry.

From The New Yorker:

"Borden’s very sense of what constitutes a story, and how to realize it in images and sounds, is as radical as the social politics that she asserts. The raw tone of her filming is nonetheless canny and precise; blunt closeups in contrasty light have a rough sculptural solidity, and the confrontational simplicity of the images evokes a rare blend of anger and analysis, affirmation and questioning. Leftism, Borden asserts, isn’t enough; a political revolution, to have any deep effect, must be a revolution in ideas and attitudes, a cultural and an intimate revolution that itself involves the media and the arts—and of which “Born in Flames” itself is an example."

There’s another mistake in Daenerys’ final "Game of Thrones" scene you may have missed. https://t.co/sbrs5QuNqQ # via @HuffPostEnt

Another beverage problem surfaces in "Game of Thrones" finale. https://t.co/igNXWOFxhB # via @HuffPostEnt

How in the heck did that get in the scene?!? https://t.co/Q2lbcRSdOh # via @HuffPostEnt

A very special moment that I will always remember in part because of the bittersweet recollection of Kristoff being the kind soul that presented it to me. He is missed. #emmys #kristoffstjohn https://t.co/cMbBj3rjuk CadyMcClain photo

Thank you Tami! It was wonderful meeting and talking with you about our doc on female directors! @TamiGoveia @Evsparis @TuggInc #seeingisbelieving #womendirect https://t.co/PvXjRwh1uf
