Reflections on Film Culture

WATCH – Purgatory House

Written by and starring 14-year-old Celeste Davis, this groundbreaking film is a living, breathing snapshot of how it feels to be a teen in today’s disconnected world. Purgatory House begins where most stories end, as it chronicles the after-life journey of a lonely teen who abandons her life of turmoil and drug addiction, only to find herself caught somewhere between heaven and hell. There, she must choose whether she will accept her drab existence or finally discover within herself the power to change. Told in non-linear fashion, this stylistic coming-of-age film offers a quirky, uncensored glimpse into the mind of today’s American youth.
