According to the Honduran Public Ministry, during the 2020 pandemic, there were more than 100,000 calls to 911 from women reporting that they were victims of domestic violence. Of these calls, less than 30% were attended by the authorities. Living Bodies it’s a documentary that portrays a society submerged in indifference and silence. We see through a journey with the camera a day in the daily life of the city. Fragments of windows, streets, balconies, apartments, buildings and residences explored the phone calls of women seeking help at 911.
At the same time that we look at a mosaic of women's bodies of different ages, we listen to the testimony of Amara. A 22-year-old Honduran woman who suffered violence at the hands of her partner. Her testimony reflects the stereotypes to which women are subjected from a young age in Latin America.
Living Bodies becomes an experimental documentary that seeks, through the sensory of images and sounds, to vindicate the empowerment of female bodies.
