Jag Är Nyfiken - En Film I Gult: I Am Curious - Yellow

Loading...
Using an innovative stylistic approach, director Vilgot Sjoman deliberately blurs the lines between the characters' lives and those of the actors portraying them. Lena, the film's protagonist is a true woman of the 60's in search of her own selfhood. She becomes a political activist, challenging traditional values on the issues of militarism, social equality and sexual liberation. The film was seized by U.S. Customs and released in the U.S. only after the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the ruling of a lower court.

In Proud Valley an African American sailor comes to a Welsh coal mining town in 1938 and helps re-open the mine at the cost of his life. Native Land, a political semi-documentary formed from staged reenactments, leads viewers on an emotional tour of the pre-World War II U.S. and its freedom-based ideologies and looks at the the forces it sees as threatening to undermine America's strengths from within: greedy capitalists, professional strikebreakers, and the Ku Klux Kan.
