Synopsis


Raised in a repressive era where sexuality was taboo, sixty-somethings Ana, Patricia, and Mayela found their understanding of womanhood based on unspoken rules and implicit impositions. Now, their fearless voices are channelled into a single 65-year-old woman (Sol Carballo) in the present day. A collective outcry against taboos, their stories poetically combine to form a kaleidoscope of memories, secrets and hidden desires. Weaving together the past and the present, this drama is centered on the experience of women and how they understand their sexuality at the different stages of their lives. From sexuality to love, and delving into education, repression, pleasure, motherhood and liberation, it tells the story of a quest to understand themselves as women in a world that limited them. Described as the “conversation she never had with her grandmothers”, writer/director Antonella Sudasassi Furniss’ second feature film, MEMORIES OF A BURNING BODY, is a heartfelt exploration of female sexuality and an ode to women everywhere.

Awards & Reviews


Intelligent, resilient, incredibly sincere, and surprisingly full of humour.
