Tantra presents a film that talks about sexuality and what that one can reveal about us. For that it presents us the body language and the expression of it, to go into the psychology of a character that trough the sexual act shows us her internal fighting against her own demons.
Under the idea of the sacred prostitute we observe a character that assume her sexuality in a quotidian way. She experiments with flesh and the pleasure that this one gives her, and she makes it in a generous and natural way. But, even for those ones who live sexuality in an open and honest way, that one is never that simple. Sexuality brings us to the extremes of good and bad. The continuity of those bodies getting together is just perfect in that continuity, but her life is perishable and mortal, because it stays just one second and, because of that one, we are able to arrive to hell.
A sacred prostitute tries to reach in some way the tantric state that will heal her, and make her feel with this elevate continuity of the human being. Is there where she will crack with her own internal conflicts, in a physical and emotional process that tries to bring her to reflection, allowing then, that maybe, finally, anytime, she will be able to reach this elevate state of dreams yearn.
