Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Like boxes within boxes, this uncensored Argentine film on the perils of censorship shows what happens when the censor's cutting shears hang poised above the filmmaker and his supporters and cast. The film itself is academic and the acting somewhat shallow -- and it is about how a film became more academic than emotional when a director constantly thwarted emotive, "dangerous" scenes between his protagonists. As a result of the censorship in the story, the personal and financial lives of those involved in the film are also affected. But the question remains as to whether real-life censorship threats affected Poder de la Censura in the same way as the film in its story was affected.
