"Take a look into the incredible mirror of lust!"

While out for lunch with a friend, Pandora (Veronica Hart) feels an unexplained compulsion to visit a small antique shop. While browsing, a large mirror catches her attention, seemingly casting a spell over her. Despite warnings by the shop keeper to be wary of its enveloping powers of sensuality, Pandora cannot overcome her strange desire to gaze into it, visiting the store again and again. Each time learning a bit more about the mirror’s debauched past and its corrupting powers – a sensation to which Pandora soon becomes a slave….

One of the final films made by the late Shaun Costello (The Passions of Carol, Waterpower), Pandora’s Mirror is a beautifully produced and gorgeously art-directed supernatural sex film with an all-star cast, headlined by Veronica Hart (Amanda By Night), Jamie Gillis (The Opening of Misty Beethoven), Tiffany Clark (Scoundrels), Marlene Willoughby (A Woman’s Torment), Kandi Barbour (Champagne For Breakfast), Annie Sprinkle (Deep Inside Annie Sprinkle), Hillary Summers (Justine), and Jerry Butler (Raw Talent).

This archival presentation will be introduced by David Church, Ph.D.
