Singapore has censored two art films at its annual film festival because of their explicit sexual content and religious symbols. "Princess," an animated film by Danish director Anders Morgenthaler, was withdrawn from the Singapore International Film Festival after the censor demanded the festival cut a "religiously offensive" scene. The film tells the story of a priest who tries to erase his dead sister's past as a porn star..."Solos," a Singapore film about the homosexual relationship between an older man and a boy, was censored because of "explicit homosexual lovemaking scenes including scenes of oral sex and threesome sex," the board said.
