Thanks Robin,
But my point is, does anyone openly protest it at
their screening there? I certainly DO feel bad when
film & video artists, especially ones calling
themselves "avant-garde", don't protest when they and
all of their colleagues are discriminated against by
law. Compulsory prior classification is not imposed on
any other arts or media, including broadcast
television which is accessible to all ages.
