The Screen Guide

Deep in the vaults of the Australian National Archives, are thousands upon thousands of celluloid scraps - these were the scenes that had been cut by the Australian government from films imported into the country 1958-1971. When Sari Braithwaite gained unprecedented access to this mysterious collection, she thought she could create a work to liberate this censored archive; to honour these displaced frames, and condemn censorship. But, after years of bearing witness to these fragments of film, this archive became challenging, unnerving. It felt almost impossible to celebrate, impossible to reconcile. [CENSORED] is a work stitched entirely from these never-before-seen artefacts of censorship: it is the story of how one filmmaker confronted an archive to reckon with film, censorship, and the power of the gaze.
