It’s just been announced that Ann Turner’s Celia will open the Stranger With My Face Horror Film Festival on August 21.
The cult film, starring Rebecca Smart, will screen along with a discussion to shed new light on a remarkable work. The event doubles as the launch of a new book, Kid Power!, featuring an essay about the film.
Director Ann Turner says, “I’m excited to be coming to Hobart, home of the freshest air on the planet and the best titled film festival, Stranger With My Face, and to team up with Rebecca Smart who I haven’t seen in person for 26 years.”
Celia is the story of an imaginative and somewhat disturbed young girl fantasizes about evil creatures and other oddities to mask her insecurities while growing up in rural Australia.
