firepussy

USA / Mexico, 2001 (MIFF 2003, Fiction)

Director: Laurel Almerinda

With poetry, montage, visceral imagery and fractured narrative, this remarkable mixed-media piece is an electrically charged journey into the mind of a volatile Latina pyromaniac poet. Fleeing urban America, Maria seeks catharsis in the lush, erotically dangerous jungles of Yucatan, Mexico. Screened at Sundance.
