The Flame Still Burns
"The Flame Still Burns" is a short film based on a poem by Alice Gonçalves Sousa. As a flame consumes oxygen and destroys everything in its path, this ‘film poem’ expresses the extent to which the narrator was herself consumed by a fiery anger. Her difficult relationship with her mother was perhaps the basis for this disturbing and unflinchingly honest poem.
