Censored by Robert Bresson's Widow
The French Society
of Authors' Rights (SACD), following a request from Robert Bresson's widow,
has forbidden Mouchette of the site http://mouchette.org
to show one of her works related to the film called "Mouchette"
created by Robert Bresson in 1967. The forbidden work is a quiz comparing
both characters, the girl from the film and the girl from the website.
This interdiction unfortunately censors a work which is an homage celebrating
the source of its inspiration. The narrow-mindedness of the heir of the
copyright is the only cause for this interdiction. As a protest, a growing
network of websites are hosting copies of this work which is no longer
allowed to be shown on http://mouchette.org.
To participate in the protest and help free Mouchette's Quiz from Censorship,
download your own
copy and put it on your website! Then
send us the URL and be listed on this page and others. Feel free to
