In honor of the many folks still under stay/safer-at-home orders around the world, Page Turners Blog has launched a “Bookish Film Festival” feature…and I have the honor of being the first post!
We are kicking the series off with a guest! Author Alethea Kontis is sharing four movies around her theme, avant-garde fairy tales.
I may be a storm chaser and a scientist at heart, but avant-garde fairy tale films are my favorite—partially because of my love for fairy tales in general, and partially because of all those fabulous and weird student films I helped my friends make in college. These four movies at the top of my list have characters we can relate to, a message about life in general, an unforgettable adventure, and (for me) a happy ending.
