"Not a Love Story remains the most high-profile film associated with Studio D. One of the most popular films and most broadly circulated documentaries in NFB history, it was highly controversial and was described in a Studio D press release as 'a central work in the burgeoning movement against pornography.' It was banned by the Saskatchewan and Ontario Censor Boards but was quickly picked up by commercial distributors across North America."
