Flowers of Thorns

The story of Remedios, an ethereal feminine spirit who, faced with violence, does not identify with the role of victim and proves to be free and indestructible.
She is immersed in the wild landscape of Sardinia, which becomes a metaphor for her physical and emotional sensations.
A message of strength and love for all women who have suffered violence.

Director Biography - Anita Luz Berman

From Eurotrash self-training and post-industrial aesthetics,
like a stray and multiethnic black cat above and below places,
she runs after visceral images and synaesthesia nestled between altered states of consciousness and resilience.

Director Statement

This film is for me and my friend Sue (Remedios) something viscerally important, it has allowed us to process the violence we have suffered, reminding us that we can choose not to accept identification as victims.
We decided to be like Remedios, free from those chains.
