From the censorship board, Enid is an editor responsible for cutting out extreme scenes from the slasher video films that took over in the 1980s. Enid is shaken after a horrific series of murders is committed using the method in one of the films she has approved. But her real shock is when she sees disastrous scenes that she associates with her past in movies that come for approval. Censor, praised for its innovative language and praised on Heavyhorror.com as "surreal and striking as well as strangely disturbing", was featured in both the Midnight section at Sundance and the Panorama section in Berlinale. One of the films that best reflects post-traumatic issues to the screen without sacrificing 1980s video aesthetics, Censor is the first feature film directed by Prano Bailey-Bond, a fan of David Lynch, Harmony Korine, Quentin Tarantino and Douglas Circus.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
