Amor Rojo (in progress)

Dora García

HD, color, 16:9, Spanish spoken, BE/NO, 2023, 91’

Amor Rojo (Red Love) uses the figure of Alexandra Kollontai (1872-1952), a Marxist theorist and Soviet revolutionary, radical feminist and sexual activist, as a guide to walk the labyrinth of female freedom, sexual emancipation, and love as weapon. The film seeks to make the necessary connections in a complex narrative bridging an ocean from Moscow to Mexico, from 20th Century socialist feminism to 21st Century Latin American transfeminisms, from the promise of revolution to the final fulfilling of that promise.
