INANNA

The Rising Goddess of Malta

INANNA the Rising Goddess of Malta celebrates Malta’s prehistoric culture for a contemporary audience.

This 90-minute film production is based on the epic poem of INANNA's most famous myth “The Descent of Inanna” which was found written on a cuneiform 5500 years ago.

 

Meet INANNA! The Goddess of life - who predates ancient Greek mythos.

 

This Art project was funded as a live Theatre production by the Canada Council for the Arts. Covid made it impossible to have this story produced Live therefore we switched over to filming this tale as if it were a live performance and will be followed by a Q & A.

 

My vision following this Canadian screening is to combine our 3rd rendition of the Live Theatre and Live Orchestra Band Spectacle presented at the MOD Club on Nov 14th, 2014 with this 4th rendition's storyline and animation presentation this Nov 5th,2022. My dream moving forward is to take this project to present Live at the Goddess’s Temples on the Island of Malta and Gozo.

 

Then following the Malta tour to bring this old tale full of symbolisms to Canada and transport back the goddesses’ excitement to present in theatres in my home town of Toronto.

 

INANNA a Goddess of Love, Beauty, Sex, Desire, Fertility, War, Combat, Justice, and Political Power, the 5500 - year - old tale of the Goddess INANNA embodies a celebration of womanhood. 

Female deities were worshiped and adored all through Prehistoric history, but the Goddess who outweighed,

overshadowed, and outlasted them all was the Goddess INANNA.

 

The goddess Inanna has roots as far back as the Neolithic era. Her worship was widespread in the prehistoric Mediterranean and Sumerian cultures, and Malta is particularly rich in ancient representations of her and sites devoted to her. In an attempt to save her ego, Inanna mistakenly kills her sister’s husband, instead of Gilgamesh (her past lover). To right this wrong, Inanna must admit her fault and beg forgiveness from her sister, the guardian of the Underworld. As Inanna descends to her sister’s realm, she is challenged to change her selfish ways at each of the 7 gates by removing her 7 degrees of the divine representing the chakras, increasing her enlightenment at each passage. When she reaches the underworld, her sister does not forgive her, and Inanna is killed.

Inanna is brought back to life, but for her to leave the Underworld, someone must replace her. Damuzi, her current lover, proves to be unfaithful and is sent for six months of the year. When Damuzi and Inanna are apart—that is, in fall and winter—the land is infertile. When they are together—in spring and summer—the land becomes fertile and fruitful. This Sumerian myth parallels the Greek myth of Persephone and Demeter.
