Synopsis

“She’s old, old, the woman / arsonist / perpetual apprentice”, reads a verse by Adrienne Rich, the poet who serves as inspiration for the film’s title, in which an arsonist lesbian, like all those who came before and all those who shall come after, relocates herself in the world after meeting a group of young lesbians in the city of Niterói. The body becomes a crossroads to celebrate “your time”, a time always in the present, which reasons with the archival images of all those who have fought desire from within, and the life projections that emerge from other combinations of love. *(C.A)
