Movie Night with Elaine Mitchener at The House of St Barnabas

Lizzie Borden's Born In Flames to be screened followed by a Q&A hosted by Nina Power

London homeless charity The House of St Barnabas and creative agency Smoke Creatives in collaboration with the Stuart Hall Foundation will host Countless Actions: Movie Night with Elaine Mitchener in the capital on 23 October. The vocalist, performer and composer was asked to select a film that has influenced her life and work, and chose Lizzie Borden's 1983 feminist fantasy flick Born In Flames. Mitchener will be in conversation with Wire writer and cultural critic Nina Power about the film, discussing how it relates to works such as Sweet Tooth, the vocalist’s cross-media performance piece regarding colonialism and its legacy.

The event is part of a series called Countless Actions: Movements, Action and Social Change organised by Smoke Creatives and The House of St Barnabas. Tickets are £10 plus booking fee.
