Submission screened on Italian TV

Submission, the short film by murdered Dutch director Theo Van Gogh, received a screening on Italian TV last night. The state network Rai 2 showed excerpts from the 11-minute long film, in spite of death threats to producers from Islamic extremists.

The scriptwriter Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been under police protection since Van Gogh’s death.

    It seems to be about violence agains women in islamic societies.
    If you typ submission “van gogh” (leave the quotes in) into google, then the first two results provide an answer in english, and the top one even has a clip from it (it’s a 10 minute film and the clip is 4 minutes, so it should give you a significant feel for what it’s about). I haven’t tried out the clip myself so i can’t vouch for the veracity of the linky
