Morgana is an artistic character portrait of a 50-year-old housewife, who re-invents herself as a sex-positive feminist porn star.
After 20 years as a dutiful housewife stuck in a loveless, sexless marriage, Morgana has had enough of her dreary life. Desperately lonely and starved of intimacy, she books a male escort for one last hurrah before ending it all. Her final night takes an unexpected turn when her relationship with the escort opens up a new world of personal and sexual freedom.
Morgana is a vibrant, creative collage that seamlessly incorporates handmade miniature elements, archival footage and artistic erotica to tell a story that is both intimate and universal.
Following the screening, stay for an insightful discussion on female sexuality, including the film’s directors Isabel Peppard and Josie Hess and star Morgana Muses.
