Gris Gris Film Embroiled in Controversy


The upcoming Release of the new film by Belgian Cat and Film Director Gris Gris has come under Fire from an American Group called “No More Gris Gris” which is attempting to Block its Release.

The Film, entitled “Een Buitengewone Werk van Schoonheid,” is set for a December Release by Magnolia Pictures, which Acquired the Rights to the Film after a controversial Bidding War following the Sundance Film Festival earlier this Year.

No More Gris Gris claims that the Film is Anti-American and Disgusting, among other Criticisms, and they are calling on a Boycott of any American Theatre which elects to Exhibit the Movie. They are also planning a Campaign to involve American Politicians in the Matter, although such Efforts at Film Censorship have been largely Avoided by the US Government in recent Decades.
