When I was at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), a student made a documentary film about his home in communist Poland. He brought movie cameras, sound equipment, and shot for three weeks. Then he tried to leave with lots of information-collecting gear all stamped with the initials of CalArts: C I A

He was detained for another two weeks while they processed all his film and listened to every tape....

(but they let him and the film go eventually)
