Date of Action: November 2011
Subject: Political/Economic/Social Opinion
Medium: Film Video
Confronting Bodies: Indian censor board
Description of Artwork: "'Rockstar' is the journey of a musician who leaves his happy life to achieve success as a singer."  In one scene, a free Tibet flag is waved.
The Incident: The Indian censor board put pressure on the film's creators to remove content from the film which referenced the exiled Tibetan government that is housed in Dharamsala, a location where the film was shot.
Results of Incident: The film was released, but in the scene which contains a free Tibet flag, the flag was blurred.
Other swear words were also edited from the movie's soundtrack by the censor board, including a Hindi expletive.  This kind of censorship is far more common in Indian films, however.
