Screening as part of "Censored - 100 Years of Film Censorship in New Zealand."

In August 1916 the Cinematograph Film Censorship Act was passed, making it illegal to show any film in New Zealand without it first being passed by the Censor. To commemorate 100 years of censorship in New Zealand Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision is showing a number of films that were banned in New Zealand on their initial release, as well as hosting public events that examine the history of film censorship in New Zealand and the challenge of censorship in today's digital age.

Today: a screening of the all three episodes of the documentary series "The Naughty Bits."

"The three-part series looks at the changing landscape of what has been deemed acceptable, or not, since Europeans arrived, and what has been done in law to uphold those mores. The first episode is all about the censorship of sex and nudity, which began as soon as the white folk copped a look at Maori carvings in the 19th century and decided to remove the willies. The remaining two episodes of 'The Naughty Bits', deal with banned language and the control of information." - 'NZ Listener,' 5 March 2016
