Ann Turner’s 1989 horror/drama Celia is a film that has almost been lost to time. It’s a powerful film that stars Rebecca Smart in the titular role of Celia, a young girl who is questioning her place in the world after the death of her grandmother. Touching on themes of communism, politics and the desire to own a rabbit, Celia is a brilliant film that is crying out for rediscovery. With thanks to guest hosts David Hart from Pop Culture Case Study and Anya Novak from AnyaWrites.com and Daily Grindhouse, the film is covered in great detail. Even if you haven’t seen the film, I highly recommend giving this one a listen.
