On July 4 1996, a little movie called The Craft was released in Australia, cementing witchy bonding and black rags as staples of Gen Y teen life.
We've asked some of our favourite Melbourne writers to wax nostalgic on the film that made us all obsessed with black lipstick, floating above the ground and walking in groups of four. Our guests will be:
Rebecca Harkins-Cross (film editor, The Big Issue; theatre critic, The Age)
Ronnie Scott (contributor, The Believer, Meanjin, the Australian, ABC Radio National, and Lucky Peach; founder of The Lifted Brow, a freeform arts, culture, fiction magazine)
Bethanie Blanchard (freelance writer and critic; literary blogger for Crikey with Liticism)
Zora Sanders (Editor, Meanjin)
Join as we talk spells, teenage friendships, questionable fashion choices, hysteria and Neve Campbell. COSTUMES ENCOURAGED.
Hosted by Stephanie Van Schilt and Estelle Tang.
