Zimbabwe blacks out scenes of Fifty Shades of Grey film
HARARE, Zimbabwe - Zimbabwe's censorship board says erotic scenes from the film Fifty Shades of Grey must be deleted before it is shown in this southern African country.
On Friday, Board of Censors secretary Isaac Chiranganyika said some scenes in the film adaptation of E.L. James' novel are too indecent to be shown in public.
One theater in the capital Harare said it won't show the film because heavy censorship would remove too much. Other theaters agreed to run the chopped-up version.
Board of Censors chairman Heya Malaba, 95, has been uncompromising about erotic movie scenes in the past.
Harare resident Stam Zengeni says he is unconcerned about censorship. He plans to buy a pirate copy of the film for $1.
