Forbidden Images

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?

Thanks Aubrey

Randy candyThis little fellow was found in a bag mixed candy in Middlesex England.

The two-inch pink sweet – in t

he shape of a naked man holding his midget gems – popped up in a pack of pick’n’mix.

Lyz Parker, 23, found him in a bag of Candy King she got at Tesco Home Plus in Staines, Middlesex.

She said: “When I opened the bag I screamed so loudly the whole office came running over. I couldn’t believe my eyes.”
