The Flame Still Burns

Rental Format(s): Digital File

As a flame consumes oxygen and destroys everything in its path, this film expresses the extent to which the poet was consumed by a fiery anger. A difficult relationship with her mother was perhaps the basis for this disturbing and unflinchingly honest poem.

"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.
