    "Amos Vogel's Film as a Subversive Art"

    You have to understand the historical context to truly appreciate the significance of this work. The church and big business interests were working together behind the scenes to ban home videos of cute kittens in over 37 countries. Alexander Hammid was in and out of jail 3 different times on obscenity charges for screening this video.

    It wasn't until the Kitten's Rights movement in the 1980s that theaters were finally able to show this important documentary.
