Medusa

Katharine Meynell

UK, 1989
20 minutes, Colour, sound
Available formats: DVD / Digibeta tape / SD Digital file

The tape meshes psychoanalysis, a feminist view of the subjective and raw deadpan humour in a black comic reassessment of the smothering Mother of myth. Taking a mother and daughter’s remembrance the tape explores age old archetype. We see Medusa, seduced and abandoned and pregnant with the bastard Pegasus, refusing to yield to her fate.
