MIFF Talks - [CENSORED] Unclassified 18+
MIFF Talks presented by
A screening of [CENSORED] followed by a panel discussion.
[CENSORED], by filmmaker Sari Braithwaite, is created entirely from scraps of international films cut by the Australian censors, 1958-1971. Although these clips were orphaned from their original context, a disturbing pattern revealed itself in these displaced frames. An experimental, personal examination of a complicated archive: this work challenges the audience to reckon with the tension of censorship, the filmmakers gaze, and role of the spectator.
Panellists include Sari Braithwaite, Corrie Chen and Isabella Eklöf; moderated by Kristy Matheson.
Sari Braithwaite is a Melbourne-based filmmaker. Her documentary films have played at MIFF, SFF, Adelaide Film Festival, Antenna Film Festival, New Zealand International Film Festival and BFI London. She was the recipient of the 2015 AFTRS Creative Fellowship to create her first feature length experimental work [CENSORED]. Her documentary Smut Hounds screened at MIFF in 2015.
