The first feature film by Ingrid Sinclair, produced by Joel Phiri and Simon Bright, and the first to be set during Zimbabwe’s liberation struggle. Shot in Zimbabwe with an entirely Zimbabwean cast, the film is based on the accounts of women who joined the liberation war.

“Flame is undoubtedly a revelation for African film, the continent’s women film-makers, and the task of retelling history with passion rather than plaintiveness that is so often the case with South African film and television.”
24 April 1997 Mail & Guardian
