THE RETURN OF THE LOVING DEAD

Monika isn t like other young women. She shares her small flat with Rob, a recently disinterred corpse which serves as the object of her affections. But then she meets good-natured Mark, and soon finds herself torn between the prospect of a normal life with a living, breathing partner and her overwhelming desire for her rotting bed-fellow.

Once prosecuted in its native Germany for glorifying violence , Jörg Buttgereit s follow-up to his ground-breaking Nekromantik is just as shocking as its reputation would suggest. But it s also a profoundly moving (if decidedly twisted) love story, and a thought provoking meditation on the nature of life and death.

    New Zealand's government announces a new chief censor to replacement Andrew Jack


    Link Here 7th April 2017
    andrew jackNew Zealand's Internal Affairs Minister Peter Dunne has announced the appointment of David Shanks as the Chief Censor of Film and Literature for a three-year term. Dunne said:

    Mr Shanks is a senior public servant who has held roles as chief legal officer and a number of acting deputy chief executive positions.

    His senior management and legal experience in the public sector will be of great benefit to the Classification Office.

    I would also like to acknowledge the significant work of outgoing Chief Censor, Dr Andrew Jack and thank him for his passion and commitment over the last six years.

    During his time, Dr Jack has overseen a number of complex classification decisions that have involved careful balancing of freedom of expression with avoiding potential harm, and continued to advance the public debate about censorship issues in a modern society.

    The Chief Censor is responsible for protecting New Zealanders from material likely to cause harm while balancing the important right to freedom of expression.

    The Office of Film and Literature Classification is an independent Crown entity, established under the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification Act 1993 to examine and censor publications, including films, videos, books, magazines, sound recordings and computer files.
