No Pride in Ankara...

Local authorities ban a screening of the British comedy drama, Pride

Pride is a 2014 UK comedy drama by Matthew Warchus.
Starring Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Dominic West. Youtube link IMDb

U.K. gay activists work to help miners during their lengthy strike of the National Union of Mineworkers in the summer of 1984.

The Ankara Governor's Office has banned the movie screening event of a LGBT group which was to have been held in the capital city on June 28. The office claimed such events can incite hatred and enmity among different fractions of the society, from which danger can arise. The office said:

It has been evaluated that the events could incite hatred and enmity among different groups of people based on class, racial, religious and sectarian differences.

It also cited public sensitivity and possible security risks from groups who could react against the LGBT event and people attending the movie screening.

The ban came after the Ankara Communist LGBTs community announced they would screen the 2014 British LGBT -related historical comedy-drama film Pride at the Nazim Hikmet Cultural Center on June 28.

Slamming the governor's office's ban, the Communist LGBTs group said the decision ignored and refused to see LGBT members as equal citizens of the society.

 

 

Censors censured...

South Africa's High Court censures the country's film censors for unfair and unlawful procedures in giving a non pornographic film a pornographic rating

Inxeba (The Wound) is a 2017 South Africa / Germany / Netherlands / France gay romance by John Trengove.
Starring Nakhane Touré, Bongile Mantsai and Niza Jay. BBFC link IMDb

Xolani, a lonely factory worker, travels to the rural mountains with the men of his community to initiate a group of teenage boys into manhood. When a defiant initiate from the city discovers his best-kept secret, Xolani's entire existence begins to unravel.

Award-winning movie Inxeba's reclassification as pornography has been overturned by the High Court in Pretoria' on the grounds that it was procedurally unfair and unlawful.

However, Judge Joseph Raulinga has stressed that Inxeba (The Wound)' which depicts a homosexual relationship between two men at an initiation school' violated the rights to dignity of Xhosa people. Furthermore' he said' if cultural beliefs and practices are to be considered' the film is harmful and disturbing and exposes 16-year-olds to the sexual conduct depicted in the film.

The film included language that was degrading to Xhosa women and further exposes women to societal violence, such as rape. It contains harmful scenes that could cause tensions within the Xhosa community and even within the broader African community. By implication, it has an effect on the rights of the Xhosa traditional group' he said.

Throughout his judgment' Raulinga stressed that the Inxeba filmmakers' rights to freedom of expression could not override the rights to dignity of Xhosa people.

 

 

But Christian clerics have caused far more harm than Christian Grey has ever caused...

Christian campaigners whinge at Sainsbury's prominent sales display for Fifty Shades Freed in the sight of children

Full story: Fifty Shades of Grey Movies...Kink for kids Hollywood style
Morality campaigners from Christian Concern have whinged at Sainsbury's for placing copies of a popular erotic romance film in full view of children entering the chain's supermarkets.

A few religious customers were absolutely horrified to find Fifty Shades Freed displayed at kids' eye line in store entrances. featuring cardboard display pictures of  lead characters Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the same clinch as the movie poster.

Helen Burgess of evangelical interest group Christian Concern said she was absolutely horrified when she saw the display. She said:

Most of us who follow the news know that the 18-rated Fifty Shades Trilogy is clearly porn, with all kinds of distasteful, demeaning and actually dangerous sexual activity in it.

The display was right in the entrance, with a big image of the front cover at children's eye level.

I was so shocked that I asked to see the store manager.

I could cry when I think about the assault on children's innocent minds and pure hearts.

 

 

A politically correct version of Zulu...

A horde of 12,000 freedom-loving Folkestone natives take on 28 privilege-demanding elitists cooped up in their ivory tower...and this time the natives win


Link Here 26th June 2018
More than 12,000 people have hit out at 28 complainers who tried to get a screening of classic movie Zulu scrapped.

The 28 who signed the anti-Zulu petition - accusing it of being racist - have been attacked by thousands of angry fans.

Organisers are standing by their decision to screen the beloved 1964 classic which will be shown at Folkestone's Silver Screen Cinema on Saturday to raise aid for armed forces charity SSAFA.

A poll on this website attracted an astonishing 13,000 votes - with 92% voting in favour of showing the film.

kentonline.co.uk writes:

Whilst the film has caused some discussion in more recent times, it is important not to gloss over parts of our history that make us feel uncomfortable. Rather than censoring a subject, a viewing could form a basis for discussion about the deeper themes in the film.

Despite detractors claiming the film is racist, there are only three slight racial epithets used in the entire 130-minute-long show - and one is directed against the Irish. Another slur was quickly slapped down by another character, while the third was a soldier being called a dozy Welshman because he forgot his rifle.

The classic movie portrays the Zulu warriors as honourable combatants, whose overwhelming numbers are only narrowly defeated by the indefatigable British Empire forces.

The film has a bit of a history of being censored and banned. BBFC cuts were required for the original 'U' rated cinema release in 1964. Then when released in Apartheid South Africa in 1964 the film was banned for black audiences (as the government feared that its scenes of blacks killing whites might incite them to violence), apart from a few special screenings for its Zulu extras in Durban and some smaller Kwazulu towns.
