While the UK has already released a censored version of the film, and the U.S. plans for an unrated and uncut release (via Invincible), Srdjan Spasojevic’s A Serbian Film (review) has become the face of controversy in Spain.
According to Spanish Website El Pais, Sitges festival director Angel Sala has been formally charged with the exhibition of “child pornography” in connection with the October 2010 screening of the film in Spain.
As translated: “The prosecution accuses the Board of a crime of child pornography display to allow the screening of the film, in which there are two images that allegedly transgress the law: the violation of a newborn baby and a sex with a child of five.
“The prosecution believes that Hall was able to commit a crime under article 189.7 of the Penal Code, punishable by three months to one year imprisonment or a fine on anyone who ‘produces, sells, distributes, exhibited to or facilitate by any means pornographic material which not having been used directly minors or incompetent, his voice is used or modified or altered image,’ ” the site adds.
