My, how times have changed

There’s a lot of talk these days about censorship: Who’s censoring who and what’s censorship and what’s not.

In the midst of all that talk, I found this video on Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish at The Atlantic.com. As the filmmaker described it:

“This short was made for the 2007 72 Hour Film Festival in Frederick, Maryland.
All of the clips used in this film came from a reel of 35mm nitrate found in an old theater somewhere in Pennsylvania. The projectionist clipped these scenes to meet local moral standards of the time.
Will our current forms of censorship look just as ridiculous to future generations?”

Just something to think about.
