Swedish Sensations Films: A Clandestine History of Sex, Thrillers, and Kicker Cinema by Daniel Ekeroth
“In 1911, Sweden established the world’s first government board of film censors, provoking a century-long war against filmmakers that outlived two world wars, communism, and the sexual revolution. In 2011, the censors finally surrendered- and SWEDISH SENSATIONFILMS declares victory with a fiery retrospective of over 200 often banned and cut films produced during the golden age of Swedish sin. PLUS: Firsthand accounts by scarlet Christina Lindberg (Thriller – Engrym Film, Maid in Sweden); scores of rare exhibition posters and images; a glossary of curious Swedish customs; and an uninhabited cast of thousands.
