Global Lens presents Pegasus

Zineb is an emotionally exhausted psychiatrist assigned to Rihana, a traumatized and pregnant young woman found in the streets muttering unintelligibly about “The Lord of the Horse.” A flashback sequence takes us to Rihana’s childhood where her dictatorial father, the horseman chief of his tribe, raises her as the son his legacy demands. Trapped in parental delusions, Rihana falls in love with a young man with whom she carves out the beginnings of her own life. Soon, Rihana’s story awakens repressed thoughts in Zineb’s own troubled mind, and reality merges into a haunted fever-dream of fear and denial in this visually striking, award-winning psychological thriller. Recommended for adult audiences.
