SICKIES MAKING FILMS

Intro by filmmaker Joe Tropea, plus book event with Robert K. Headley and Pat Padua, authors of “Historic Movie Theaters of Washington, DC

A love letter to the movies, SICKIES MAKING FILMS looks at our urge to censor films and asks why? It uncovers reasons both absurd and surprisingly understandable. Using the Maryland Board of Censors (1916–1981) as a lens, as well as archival materials, classic film segments and interviews with filmmakers and exhibitors subjected to censorship, this documentary examines a recurring American problem. DIR/PROD Joe Tropea. U.S., 2018, color/b&w, 84 min. NOT RATED
