Memories of a Burning Body

By Antonella Sudasassi Furniss, Costa Rica, Spain 90´, 2024

Pleasure and desire through the memory and intimacy of three women over 65.

Memories of a Burning Body portrays the story of Ana, Patricia and Mayela, who, raised in a repressive era when sexuality was taboo, gradually found the meaning of femininity through unspoken rules and implicit impositions. Now, their courageous voices are embodied in a single 65-year-old woman who reviews a kaleidoscopic life in which memories, secrets and hidden desires intertwine.
