Reno: A Theoretical and Interactional Perspective

by Annika Stough

My goal with this film was to produce a theoretical and interactional presentation surrounding Reno v. ACLU.  I approached the description of the case through the lens of censorship and Overbreadth (Monaghan). I wanted this film to go through the case in terms that a student outside of class would understand. By laying out the terms of the case and the result initially, it left room in the film for me to layout a couple theoretic ideas and questions for my interviewees to answer. Although I discuss theory, I thought it would be important to include actual voices and opinions on the topic, especially because Internet censorship is applicable to our age group.
