dir. Michael Winterbottom, 2004, 71 min.

Antarctica and London rock concerts form counterpoint in this young British scientist’s recollection of a love affair.

Second in a four-part series on Cinema, Censorship, and the Scandal of Sex, which brings together recent films that have been seen as an outrage to decency, morality, religious beliefs, and other community norms.

From Thomas Edison’s 18-second film The Kiss  (1896) to recent controversies over trigger warnings on college campuses, the representation of sex on screen has always been a scandal. This series brings together films from the past two decades that have been seen as an outrage to decency, morality, religious beliefs, and other community norms.
