Australian indie film Morgana is heading to Fantasia 2020! The documentary was an official selection at the 2019 Melbourne International Film Festival and has been racking up some amazing reviews on the festival circuit.
Check out the trailer below, then read on for all the details!
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. Instead of killing herself, Morgana makes an award-winning porn film about their date, moves from suburban Australia to Berlin, and becomes a celebrated feminist porn director and star.
This multi-layered documentary portrait tracks Morgana’s efforts to dismantle society’s expectations while finding her authentic self, embracing community, and claiming space for a plus size woman in her fifties who just wants to have kinky sex on film. Combines interviews, verite, handmade miniature elements, animation, archival footage and Morgana’s own erotica films to tell a beautifully crafted story that is both intimate and universal.
Isabel Peppard and Josie Hess co-directed the film. It stars Morgana Muses in the title role
