MTRCB gives X rating to human rights films

Posted: September 24, 2007 in Movies, Political killings Philippines, Socio-Political

The MTRCB, in a patently idiotic move, banned several human rights films from public viewing. The reason given was that the films were one-sided and undermined people’s confidence in government.

Ironically, the decision came when the nation was commemorating the 35th anniversary of Martial Law.

Here’s a link to some of the films. Judge for yourself if the MTRCB was correct in its censorship of these progressive works.

  1. I strongly condemn the MTRCB’s action. What kind of people are we?

    Films showing concern for human rights such as “Rights” are banned? Rated X?

    Had Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo were not published, we would have been living in a literal dystopia.
