  • Introduction: Daniël Biltereyst (Ghent University), Bruno Mestdagh (Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique – Cinematek) in English

The Belgian constitution prohibits censorship in all media, including film. Belgium thus gives the impression of being a liberal country. However, the Belgian Film Inspection Board Commission, created in 1920 to classify films according to violence, sex, drug use and other subjects, did not hesitate to make major cuts and the Belgian Cinematek owns many of them. Daniël Biltereyst and Bruno Mestdagh created ONGEZIEN from images that were never shown on Belgian cinema screens.
