A Forbidden Orange

  • 1h 18m
  • Pedro González Bermúdez
  • Spain
  • 2021

Acclaimed director Pedro González Bermúdez takes an in depth look at the events surrounding Spain banning Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 cult masterpiece A Clockwork Orange.

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. The result is an explosive tale of religion, morality, and fascist dictatorships.

In 1975, after a lengthy embargo under fascist dictator Francisco Franco, Kubrick’s film was screened at the long-running religious film festival, Seminci, in the conservative provincial city of Valladolid, an unlikely home for an event that would forever shape the lives of those in attendance.

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.
