A hilarious masterpiece by Singaporean director Royston Tan, follow Mrs Censor’s struggle to catch her breath as an obsessive fanboy (and his posse) pester her about the art of editing. Hailed as a film lover with impeccable taste and brilliant editing skills, she is worshipped for her self-sacrifice and selflessness in protecting the citizens of Singapore from immoral and polluting ideas in film. A hysterical piece of satire dancing hand in hand with some of the world’s greatest musicals, let us all be thankful for Mrs Censor – “censorship sets you free; censorship is for you and me.”
