Acclaimed director Pedro González Bermúdez takes an in depth look at the events surrounding Spain banning this cult masterpiece. Described by critics as “morally corrupt” and “a cursed film”, lead actor Malcolm McDowell narrates this eye-opening film about the fallout of the release.

A Forbidden Orange (La naranja prohibida) looks back at a film that, nearly 50 years later, still raises questions about the nature of freedom and film’s ability to change the world.
