Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen co-write and co-direct this 1970s avant-garde feature. The film follows the struggles of middle-class mother Louise (Dinah Stabb) and her young daughter Ana (Riannon Tise) as they live in a patriarchy. Their story is interlaced with a depiction of Greek mythical hero Oedipus’s encounter with the Sphinx who ruled over Thebes by forcing travellers to answer a riddle, killing those who responded incorrectly.
