Memories of a Burning Body

By Antonella Sudasassi Furniss, Costa Rica, Spain 90´, 2022

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

Memories of a Burning Body is a lyrical portrait that freely and poetically interweaves and recreates the lives of Ana (68), Patricia (69) and Mayela (71) to allow us to discover how they understand and enjoy their sexuality when the rest of the world thinks it no longer exists. Enjoy it now when the body no longer responds in the same way and wrinkles, gray hair and blemishes have taken over. Does pleasure diminish? Does desire still exist? What changes?
