An insidious nexus of commercial interests, wayward ideology, government chicanery and media zealotry have combined to make this truly 'The Golden Age of Censorship.'
Forced into underground, Soviet Union-style screenings, these vilified films neither affront the public morals nor scream sedition - they simply surface inconvenient questions and politically and commercially dangerous ideas. Blacklisted, banned, censored, de-platformed and disinvited - a 'New McCarthyism' now makes reasoned discourse impossible and scandalises mere disagreement. Cheered on by a braying and compliant media, the 'Nanny State' and its simplistic swarms of online foot soldiers police 'wrongthink' through shrill do-gooders and pastel-Police State apparatchiks. MUFF is proud to present this contentious documentary as a rallying cry for all Free Speech advocates, refuseniks, troublemakers and free thinkers. Let the resistance begin...
The Red Pill (USA - 2016)
For her latest project, feminist film maker Cassie Jaye decided to enter the ominous labyrinth of the 'Men's Rights Movement.'She came out the other side a changed person. Sincere, unpretentious and affecting, her documentary, The Red Pill, has since been picketed, petitioned and pushed to the margins - weathering an endless storm of cancelled screenings, and subjecting Jaye herself to the pitiful abuse of the clucking morons of Australian network television. Come see the viral film sensation that has yet to have an open, public screening in Australia and come see why.
