Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Made her name as an independent New York filmmaker with the acclaimed feature "Born in Flames" (1982), shot on a budget of approximately $30,000. Borden has gone on to shape a cinema primarily concerned with the representation of women in contemporary society, and received widespread attention for "Working Girls" (1986), an incisive, witty probe of workaday life in a well-appointed brothel. She made her mainstream Hollywood debut with the $6 million-plus sexual thriller, "Love Crimes" (1992) about an assistant district attorney (Sean Young) obsessed with a con man (Patrick Bergin) who seduces women in order to rob them by posing as a famous fashion photographer. Subsequently, Borden turned to the small screen helming episodes of soft-core cable series (i.e. "Red Shoe Diaries" Showtime).
