Joining me today is Prano Bailey-Bond, the filmmaker who wrote and directed Censor, a movie that takes place during the U.K. "Video Nasties" era and tells the story of Enid, a film censor who screens all these videos to implement cuts of scenes deemed too dangerous to be viewed. The movie asks if watching violent movies causes people to act violent, then what prevents censors from also becoming violent.
I wanted to have Prano on the podcast to talk about censorship and give us some insight into our not-so-distant past and how that might have shaped today's standards and regulations. Are we doomed to repeat ourselves?
