Redacted Trailer and Poster for '!Women Art Revolution'

Apple is running a trailer for Lynn Hershman Leeson's doc '!Women Art Revolution' about the struggle of female artists, aka "A subculture that was no longer content with remaining a footnote", who seek 'to become an implicit part of the cultural narrative'. That is, the fight against censorship, the battle to have one's voice heard.

It's a good trailer, doc should be worth a look. But, someone at Apple decided to black out certain imagery in the trailer. They did the same in the poster. I know -- there are rules. It's mass media, after all. However, the contradiction is a bit cute. And a bit ridiculous. 

I wonder what Leeson thinks of the promotional effort.

Check out the trailer if you haven't seen it. Here's the adjusted poster.
