The documentary Burlesque – A Womans story tells the real experiences of Italian women who have changed their lives for the Burlesque. Eve La Plume, Milena Bisacco, Janet Fischietto, Scarlett Martini, Albadoro Gala and Betty Rose are the protagonists of this film that tells their different stories linked by a fil rouge that one day made them exclaim: I was Burlesque and I did not know. Their voices compose a single choral story that emerges from the interviews – portraits, enriched with unpublished images of performances and workshops.
