Using Varsha Panikar’s poetry series by the same name, as the point of departure, Bodies of Desire is a visual poetry. The film captures four set of lovers amid passion; to create a portrait of tender intimacy, of longing, of discovery, of embrace and care, of profound companionship. A sensual celebration of gender-less love and desire, inspired by the poet’s lived reality. The text follows the poet’s journey of healing and self-acceptance as they rediscover love, passion and identity after encountering their muse, their lover, who acts as an encounter, a rupture that awakens the poet and their desire to express their inner truth.
