The Summer Without Censorship Festival, held by the Municipal Secretary of Culture of SP, exhibits at the São Paulo Cultural Center (CCSP) the posters removed by Ancine (National Cinema Agency), by the new management of the body, appointed by President Jair Bolsonaro.

In December, ANCINE removed from its walls, at its headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, posters of Brazilian films that had been on display since 2002. The posters removed showed national works that discussed urgent and provocative topics. The exhibition aims to reaffirm the visibility of productions with LGBTQIA+ themes and to support freedom of expression and the diversity of Brazilian cinema.

Other facilities in the city of São Paulo receive activities linked to the festival, which is intended to host cultural events that have suffered some type of censorship in recent years, from exhibitions to plays. In the exhibition program, the Mário de Andrade Library has, as of January 17, the exhibition banned, which presents a collection of rare books censored in the history of literature.

Exhibition with censored movie posters

São Paulo Cultural Center: Rua Vergueiro, 1000 – Paraíso, São Paulo
