Motion Picture Censorship

History 339 or History 406

Usual Description

For a century American movies have operated within controversial systems that define the boundaries of cinematic expression. Whether censored by state and municipal governments, contained within Hollywood’s Production Code Administration, or rated by today’s industry ratings agency, movie makers maneuvered at the boundaries of cultural expression and economic ambition. We consider new theoretical approaches to censorship, then explores film makers responses, and the ambiguous and shifting results. Several landmark films are screened.
