This film is not available by censorship of a court
17 February 2017 | by joaquinnqSee all my reviews

This film was censored in December 2016 in Venezuela, where a judge ordered to remove it from the cinemas. His condition for to exhibit it again was that a few (5 or 6) scenes were removed. The creative team refused.

It is timely to point out that in Venezuela it's only legal to censure "messages that incite or promote hatred and intolerance, crime or war, foment anxiety in the citizenship, alter the public order, ignore the authorities, induce the homicide, incite or promote the breach of the current legal system".

Finally, it is eloquent that both, the judge who signed the order and the family of Edwin Valero (which introduced the lawsuit that motivated this action), later stated that THEY HAD NOT SEEN the film.

Today (17 Feb 17), the possible exhibition of El Inca is still discussed in Venezuelan courts, in higher instances.
