"Explores the wide scope of film censorship from a variety of perspectives."- Office for Intellectual Freedom of the ALA
Film censorship seems like a relic from the early days of cinema, but states had their own censorship boards well into the era of the MPAA. Sickies Making Films charts the history of movie censorship in the US, from the inception of the medium through the abolition of the last state board of censors in the 1980s. Using clips from rare and classic works of film and featuring interviews from the likes of John Waters, Sickies is perfect for Film and Media studies departments. A trek through film history that's sure to delight any cinephile, Sickies Making Films is likely to surprise even the most ardent film historians.
