SYNOPSIS

Composed of cinematic moments and insightful interviews Sickies Making Films explores the history of American movies by focusing on the nation's longest surviving censor board, the Maryland State Board of Censors (1916-1981). As motion pictures first began to appear calls for censorship accompanied them. In seven states and dozens of cities, censors banned and altered movies citing reasons such as sex, violence, politics, and race issues. Historian and documentarian Joe Tropea traces the battles, hangups, and eventual demise of the film censors in this hilarious and informative documentary.
