Home » Girl & Flame

A girl bonds with a piece of flame leftover from the inferno that consumed her brother, father, and lover. Through this relationship, the girl explores her complicated family history and her place in the world. Meanwhile, the flame discovers new fuel: human need, hot and vile. Told in a series of innovative flash vignettes, Melissa Reddish’s Girl & Flame is an inventive and thoughtful meditation on the intersection of grief, longing, and the natural world.
