One of a group of works made by young American artist Mary Reid Kelley that re-examine aspects of Greek mythology.

Combining humour and tragedy, the film focuses on a minotaur roaming a labyrinth beneath a gymnasium, waiting for members of the losing team to be sent down as food, and the posturing of one of the players, Priapus who, at the film’s end, will descend to destroy the creature.

As in all mythology nothing is black and white, and plot and sub plot weave over each other in this playful and inventive work.
