MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Before issuing distribution certificates, Russia’s Ministry of Culture should subject films to greater scrutiny as far as elements of pornography and pedophilia propaganda are concerned, Safe Internet League CEO Denis Davydov told journalists on Wednesday.
“It is necessary to pay greater attention to the content of films,” he said. “The state body should check the content on its own and not take every word on trust. The Culture Ministry should examine films itself and recommend cutting any doubtful scenes.”
Davydov said the existing age restrictions on films containing ‘adult’ scenes failed to protect children from undesirable information given that most of them were available on the Internet.
The head of the Safe Internet League said earlier on Wednesday the league’s experts had revealed signs of pedophilia propaganda in the French film “Blue is the Warmest Color”, the winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, also released in Russia.
The league said it would request Russia’s Federal Supervision Agency for Information Technologies and Communications Roskomnadzor to ban the spread of the film on the Internet, and would appeal to the Russian Culture Ministry for explanations how the film with such content was allowed to be released in Russia.
“Blue is the Warmest Color”, also known as “Adele: Chapters 1 & 2”, is a 2013 French romantic coming-of-age drama film written, produced, and directed by Franco-Tunisian film-maker Abdellatif Kechiche. The film has been the subject of a lot of critical discussion, partly for its explicit depictions of lesbian sex.
The Safe Internet League is a non-commercial organization launched by several major internet providers and a Christian charity. The declared aim of the group is ridding the Internet of dangerous content through self-regulation in order to prevent government censorship.
