An attempt to convey the emotions felt when things fall apart, this Film Poem provides a litany of expectations and disappointments of a failed relationship. The reflections of clouds in the pond reference both dreams and a degree of narcissism and self-interest expressed in the poem.

Soundtrack includes excerpt from Olivier Messiaen, Turangalila Symphonie

"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.
