"A Fire in My Belly" 

When: Thu., Feb. 17, 7-9 p.m. 2011
Price: Free
When the Washington, D.C., National Portrait Gallery succumbed to mounting pressures from the Catholic League and conservative congressmen to remove David Wojnarowicz's controversial short film about sexual identity and HIV in the '80s, it added fuel to the censorship fire that sparked activists to protest the Smithsonian's decision. Emory University screens "A Fire in My Belly" as well as "ITSOFOMO." After the screenings, ArtsCriticATL's Rebecca Dimling Cochran, Frequent Small Meals' Andy Ditzler and more lead a panel discussion concentrating on artistic freedom, censorship and public policy.
