2: Kissed (1996) with Erica Genereux Smith
Filmmaker Erica Genereux Smith joins Becky and Cam to discuss the 1996 Vancouver set-and-filmed Drama-Romance, Kissed. Explicitly "Not for everyone", this adaptation of a Barbara Gowdy short-story about necrophilia, ritual, and sexual awakening will leave you asking a whole lot of questions. Beautifully shot, tenderly acted and with a haunting score, check out a key Canadian contribution to the 90's indie movie explosion.
A reminder - this show covers a movie about necrophilia. You've been warned, so don't send us letters - unless they're good letters with cool stories we can share on the podcast. Next week is a family-friendly summer camp romp. Feel free to come back then if you're squeamish.
