Ep. 33 - Titanic // GUEST: Claudia Bitran Bonnie & Maude

    • TV & Film

To commemorate the sinking of Titanic on the morning of April 15th, 1912, we revisit a movie that stayed afloat long past anyone's expectations.Joining us for this episode is filmmaker and artist Claudia Bitran, currently working on a shot-for-shot remake of the record-breaking 1997 James Cameron film.  All of us watched Titanic as early teens, so the time seems ripe to reassess it now that we're grown-ass women. We also take a closer look at what has buoyed the film while simultaneously making it a target of mockery: teen female fandom.Plus: Hear about some of our listeners' tender memories of watching the film, and tell us yours by leaving a message at 530-628-3379.
