Rental Format(s): Digital File

Mirrors are like windows, they provide a reflection of the world or they fabricate lies. Shades both reveal and conceal. This short film poem utilizes the metaphor of window, mirror, and shade. Both a reflection on aging and a fantasy of youth and beauty that only exists in one's memory and imagination.

"This film is part of an Octet of Film Poems inspired by the poetry of my late aunt, Alice Gonçalves Sousa. Written in narrative style, Alice's poetry reflects the values of mid-century America when she came of age, particularly the attitudes toward women. I use the poems as a script and a jumping off point to create something new through the synergy of text, sound and image."

The complete Film Poem Octet is also available to rent as a package with reduced rental price.
