Doco of the Month: Morgana
Join us for the latest in documentary filmmaking. We’ll be celebrating diverse voices and intriguing personalities, uncovering truths from the exciting to the uncomfortable, and – most importantly – sharing real stories from Australia and around the world.
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 a new world of personal and sexual freedom. After hearing about a competition for first-time erotic filmmakers, Morgana directs and stars in a film about her own story, Duty-Bound.
Unexpectedly her film wins, catapulting her into the international feminist porn community.
Life merges with art as Morgana uses erotic filmmaking as a tool for creative catharsis, while struggling with demons from her past.
