SLOVAK “INAPPROPRIATE” FILMS AFTER 1989: CENSORSHIP OR BAN?
Languages of publication
This study focuses on forms of censorship that appeared in Slovak authorial documentary film after 1989, with investigative documentary being the most afflicted genre. In the introduction, the author describes institutional forms and mechanisms of state censorship, which was used as an effective ideological tool to supress “inappropriate” information in Slovak film production during the existence of the first Slovak State (1939 – 1945) and in the former Czechoslovakia (1948 – 1989). Residues of such institutional censorship later appeared also in democracy (1989 – 2015), namely in the form of politically or religiously motivated pressure exerted on audio-visual production and its authors by representatives of the ruling (government) parties and their nominees.
