A UK cinema has banned a sex film that has been criticised for showing a naked woman being abused and her genitals mutilated, after complaints about the depiction of violence and rape.
The film, “Blackout Window,” is based on the true story of a woman who was abused as a child and was forced to have sex with three men before being raped by them.
It has been banned from the UK cinemas, despite being in cinemas since 2013.
The company that produced the film, British Film Institute, said it “had not consulted the film-makers” before publishing the controversial trailer.
The film’s director, Alex De Luca, was a victim of sexual abuse himself.
The video was shown at the Royal Festival Hall on Sunday evening and was filmed in a room with an open window, which is often used to film rape and other sexual assault.
A spokesperson for British Film Institutions told the BBC the trailer did not violate UK law.
“The trailer does not depict any kind of sexual violence, abuse or violence against any person,” they said.
“We have no legal restrictions on its distribution.
We take this matter very seriously and are working to ensure that we are fully compliant with the law.”
The film’s distributor, Feral House Films, said in a statement: “We understand the anger and disappointment felt by many at the trailer and have made every effort to ensure this film is not used in the future.”
We will continue to work with the filmmakers and their team to ensure their release and that the film is screened in future.
“British Film Institute said in an emailed statement that the trailer had not been approved by the ASA.”
While it is perfectly understandable that some may find the content of the trailer distressing, we hope that our industry colleagues will continue their work to ensure these types of films are never released in future,” it said.
The ASA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The British Film Council has also said that it was “not responsible for the content” of films that had been made. “
This is a disturbing film, which shows extreme violence against women, which should never be shown in the UK,” the group said in its statement.
The British Film Council has also said that it was “not responsible for the content” of films that had been made.
The council also said it would not be responsible for any actions of the producers of the film or anyone who views it.
“The BFI has reviewed the trailer to ensure it is in line with all the regulations it has been responsible for following for the past 12 years, and it does not contain any such material,” the BFI said.
