The Wrong Flowers
by Nicola Williams
A short film film based on a poem by Brenda Cook, a Bristol artist with learning difficulties
"I am wanting to be me
When I was small
And picking the wrong flowers" Brenda Cook
Brenda Cook said: "I want to show people who I am, my own way. I've moved on from all that, I've got my own flowers now, I get my colours by doing my arts."
Set in the 1940s, the film is a poignant exploration of the young Brenda's realisation of her differences, and how she creates a vivid fantasy world to stop her sense of individuality being submerged.
