The AROUSING
A film by Malcolm Hart
and Mike Margetts



John Trevelyan, Secretary of the British Board of Film Censors at the time, refused The Arousing a certificate, saying, "The film is an impression in sound and symbolic pictures of the act of copulation and it is considered that in both sound and visuals it exceeds the present limits of the Board of Film Censors for such material".
The film was sold for theatrical release in Sweden and Canada, received the Tito Prize in a Yugoslav short film festival and became a favourite on the UK university circuit.
