Monsura is Waiting

A film festival favorite, Monsura is Waiting is a comedy about two aging showgirls, one giant moth and a fateful night in Bridgeport, CT. Sisters Betty and Dot have spent years performing in a Vaudeville act inspired by 1960’s Japanese horror movies.  As the lines begin to blur between fantasy and reality, Dot longs to escape the performer’s world, while Betty believes Monsura is actually coming.
