As writer, visual artist, performer and pioneer of the Queer movement in Latin America, Pedro Lemebel shook up the conservative Chilean society during Pinochet's brutal dictatorship in the 1980s.
Body, blood and fire were protagonists in his work that he attempted to perpetuate in the last eight years of his life in a film he was never able to see finished.
In an intimate and poetic journey through his risky performances dealing with homosexuality and human rights, Lemebel portrays a culmination of yearning immortality. It is the story of a character who reflects on his life and who says goodbye to the world that surrounded and tormented him.
Screening as part of the Festival of Latin American Women in Arts (FLAWA).
