Keeping Australia relaxed and comfortable
Police raid film festival screening, arrest Margaret Pomeranz
. The SBS film critic was involved in an illicit screening of critically acclaimed US art film Ken Park
, which was banned for offending the morés of the Liberal-voting Silent Majority. Meanwhile, while the censorious climate has irked film buffs, it has given hope in other quarters; a Jewish group is pushing to ban two films
from the Melbourne Underground Film Festival. One is a film about discredited historian David Irving, and another is a history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which is claimed to vilify Israel. (By the same token, when Senator Alston builds his national firewall, perhaps it'll be programmed to block Robert Fisk articles.)
