A new documentary about censorship and the cinema premiered at a recent film festival. Created by a team of film experts, activists, and archival researchers, this film includes interviews, movie clips, and narration that explores this particular aspect of history.
On Feb. 21, PBS premiered ‘And Still I Rise,’ a documentary on the life of Maya Angelou. Using mostly archival footage and interviews with the author herself, it is an opportunity to learn about the author’s life largely in her own words, from her childhood in Stamps, Arkansas, through her years in New York and Ghana, up to her death in 2014.
These “Scary Stories” are being shown new light with an upcoming documentary about not only the story themselves but also the controversy surrounding them.
