The 49-hour-long film Magic Bullet is a chronological montage of all the film scenes that were cut by the Swedish State Film Censorship office between 1934 till 2002. The revelation of what the society has engineered to hide says the most about its social and ideological constructions in a given epoch but also questions the dissolving of the censorship today, replaced by an internalization of social control.
