Screening

Taboo Film Series

Witness some of the most controversial films of our time. Opening the series and setting the bar is Salo (120 days of Sodom) by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Made in 1975, it was banned in Australia until 2010. Be challenged by the themes and content of this classic and other local and international films embodying the essence of TABOO.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

135 minutes
Village Roadshow
Director: Spike Lee
Dark, biting satire of the television industry, focusing on an Ivy-League educated black writer at a major network. Frustrated that his ideas for a Cosby Show-esque take on the black family has been rejected by network brass, he devises an outlandish scheme: reviving the minstrel show. The hook: instead of white actors in black face, the show stars black actors in even blacker face. The show becomes an instant smash, but with the success also comes repercussions for all involved.
