Cut-Uncut Festival Raises Hopes in India
We have some news in our archive that deal with problems that films face with the Indian censorship. Even very harmless things such as kissing isn't aren't always safe from cutting.
But it seems that the responsible agency in New Delhi wants to distance itself a little bit from these strict guidelines and signals that they could become more liberal. For the 100th anniversary of the Indian film industry, there will be a Cut-Uncut Festival that will show "long kissing scenes, naked bodies and the visual display of rebellious acts against the government". As an employee of the ministry of information declares, the old censorship rules are subject to change and should acknowledge the artistic character of the films.
The first film to be screened at the festival is Karma. It was made in 1933 and is the first movie featuring a kiss (which was censored).
