Toronto: Pleasure Dome and LIFT, 2006

This article features in the exhibition catalogue "(Mary, Mary) Are these the hands that cut?" printed for the benefit and screening party for Glad Day Bookshop. This short article discusses Glad Day's charge of violation by the Ontario Theatres Act for selling a video that was not submitted to the censor board for approval. The article circulates around the Film Classification Act which retains the right to ban videos and films. Pleasure Dome does not comply with the act and submit any videos to censoring bodies. Activists say that the Ontario Film Review Board violate Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms. More info
