BANNED! Crucified - Hybrid Film Talk

Film still from In the Realm of the Senses aside a still from Monty Python's The Life of Brian

Week 4 of BANNED! will focus on Nagisa Oshima’s In the Realm of the Senses (1976), a pornographic art film from Japan, and the delightfully blasphemous Monty Python’s The Life of Brian (1979), directed by Terry Jones.
