A post-apocalyptic thriller from renowned director Angie Rowntree offers timely political commentary.
BOSTON (October 12, 2018) – Over the years, adult film director Angie Rowntree has earned a reputation for taking on subject matter and emotional territory which is unusual to find in a pornographic work. Her latest film, Invictus, is yet another example of this intrepid tendency.
Calling it her “first overtly political film,” Rowntree says Invictus was inspired by what she sees as the most pressing issues facing the world today, including climate change, government corruption and eroding trust in the media.
“I’m not a senator or congresswoman, so I have no vote on who gets to serve on the Supreme Court, or any input on the environmental policies (or any policies) government agencies enact or enforce,” Rowntree said. “As a filmmaker, my movies are my platform – and Invictusrepresents the first time I’ve used that platform to communicate a political message.”
An erotic foray into a dystopian near-future, Invictus presents the story of scientist Jane Darling (played by Delirious Hunter), a woman determined to combat the social and environmental decay into which the world has descended.
As she struggles to survive the wasteland which surrounds her and make it to the rendezvous point where she is to meet former colleague, Ava (Ava Mir-Auszienhen), she encounters Paul Young (Joeydotrawr), a journalist who escaped the government’s crackdown on the independent press and has been hiding out ever since.
At first out of curiosity, then later as a devoted convert to her cause, Paul joins Jane on her quest to fight back against the forces which continue to tear the world apart.

As is the case with many of Rowntree’s movies, the lead roles are played by a married couple (Hunter and Joeydotrawr), a fact which contributes to their on-screen chemistry, especially during the film’s sex scenes.
Invictus star Delirious Hunter shares “All three sex scenes are so unique and exquisitely executed that they take my breath away. Each scene creates a perfect blend (or ménage à trois if you will!) of cinema, art, and sex.”
While the world depicted in Invictus is in dire condition, Rowntree said she hopes the audience finds reason to maintain hope within it, as well.
“I want people to see the determination and conviction Jane has and consider that if we can come together and unite around common interests like freedom of expression, civil rights and a shared need to prevent global environmental disaster, maybe it’s not too late. Maybe we can work together to reverse our decline and establish a more livable, kinder world.”
Released on September 20, 2018, Invictus was shot over the summer of 2017 and features multilingual newscasts delivered by people within the adult industry.
