A documentary that covers the 1997 Oklahoma confiscation of the film "The Tin Drum" due to a judicial ruling of child pornography, and the six years of legal wranglings that ensued.

Although I did not care for the protagonist (ACLU attorney Michael Camfield, who passed in 2011) and his musical antics, the story of the case itself was rather interesting. I can completely see how "Tin Drum" could be labeled child pornography. While I do not think it is, there is the one scene in particular that may make people uncomfortable.

This is a nice slice of culture, between the religious conservatives and those who push for artistic freedom. Most interesting was that the police actually went to a person's house and confiscated a rented VHS tape... they could have waited for it to be returned. What of those who purchased the film? Did they subpoena a list of buyers from Kino? of course not.
