    • Synopsis
    • A communications genius, succesfull cartoonist, visionary stylist, renowned writer, Leonardo is a celebrity for his fights in defence of anti-Semitism.
      When he disappears out of the blue, leaving his neonazi fans in despair, the shocking news becomes a fully fledged national emergency, and a huge group of supporters crowds around the house of the young activist. His mother is desperate, the neighbourhood paralised. Every tv channel is talking about him, all the authorities expressing their solidarity with the family. Many people don’t want to believe it, maybe hoping it is another one of his publicity stunts.

      BURNING LOVE, shot as a mockumentary, is a surreal parody which has the unspoken intent of reflecting on the very delicate subject of anti-Semitism with a clever use of fierce mocking irony.
      It engages contemporary events with a satirical perspective so that to reveal human hypocrisy and disclose the true nature of the often-underestimated issue of anti-Semitism using remarkable Jewish self-irony.
