Synopsis
Enid (Niamh Algar, Calm with Horses), a film censor, takes pride in her meticulous work, guarding unsuspecting audiences against the deleterious effects of watching the gore-filled decapitations and eye-gouging she pores over. Her sense of duty to protect is amplified by guilt over her inability to recall details of the long-ago disappearance of her sister, recently declared dead in absentia. When Enid is assigned to review a disturbing film from the archive that echoes her hazy childhood memories, she begins to unravel how this eerie work might be tied to her past.

From director and co-writer Prano Bailey-Bond (Nasty), Censor had its world premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, the film also stars Michael Smiley (Kill List) and Nicholas Burns (Emma.), and is produced by Helen Sara Jones (The Works and Days).
