Open-sourced, people’s history of film censorship launched

'A People’s History of Film Censorship' is an interactive timeline that is crowd-sourced with as many instances of what has been censored in both big and small screens in Malaysia since 1960 till the present.

THE word “sial”, dead communists and the sale of ladies’ undergarments. Also, housewives showing off their jewellery, politicians being corrupt and politicians themselves admitting that corruption does happen.

Most of us would not be triggered by these things. But they are among the many elements that have upset a small but powerful group of people who decide what Malaysians can or cannot watch on television and cinema.
