Censors OffcutsIn 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.
