[CENSORED] (2018) - This unique 63 minute documentary was entirely created using the banned motion picture film footage removed by the censors working at the "Australian Film Censorship Board" located in Sydney Australia, between 1951 and 1978. Melbourne archivist and filmmaker Sari Braithwaite after making her initial short film SMUT HOUNDS (2015) containing seventy-seven seconds of 1960s forbidden celluloid, famously gained unprecedented access to Canberra's World Cinema storage archive of many many thousands of banned movie clip sequences. Film frames that were cut from international/continental films, that were screened very heavily edited with reduced running times, in Australian Cinemas between 1951 and 1978. Cleverly re-edited scenes, there were no obvious signs that image and soundtrack had been removed. CUSTOMS (CINEMATOGRAPH FILMS) REGULATIONS 1956 No.94 was the Australian Government Commonwealth Legislation, that prevented Australians from sitting in a cinema watching the original version of films that without cuts would be "blasphemous, indecent or obscene, OR likely to be injurious to morality, OR to encourage or incite to crime, OR a matter the exhibition of which is undesirable in the public interest." Yes all the bits, see the unseen, that Australians were never ever supposed to see, carefully curated and thoughtfully compiled from 2000 never-before-seen snippets of visual vice. Australian audiences in 2018 are challenged with unanswered questions about nanny-state censorship, and the ultimate power of uncensored cinema. Screened during the 65th Sydney Film Festival 6-17 June 2018.
