'Gaslighting speaks to the fundamental structural problems which depict a failed system where far too often girls are caught in the matrix of institutional atrocities and become collateral damage. The cries of indigent girls are often silenced. The film speaks volumes to the overarching themes of systemic abuse, state violence, and gender inequity whenever poverty prevails.
What is more troubling, is how we expect a child to navigate several collapsed institutions at one time without becoming a martyr within their communities. Brooke setting the house on fire metaphorically speaks to her life experiences. The fire embers in Brooke's life were full steam ahead before the film progressed but we only bare witness to the fire. Far too often the fate of girls is perforated by institutional systems that have caused egregious damage. We have to begin to question can institutions protect and serve as they were designed, without deepening harms. Until we take the covers off the implicit biases girls will continue to be shackled while silently hanging in the balance.'
