Winner of the 2024 Berlinale Panorama Audience Award, Memories of a Burning Body follows three women, raised in a repressive era where sexuality was taboo. Ana, Patricia, and Mayela found their understanding of womanhood based on unspoken rules and implicit impositions. Now, their fearless voices incarnate in a single 65-year-old woman, who revisits a kaleidoscopic life of intertwined memories, secrets, and hidden desires.
