Entertaining and educating: a century of LGBTQ+ representation in Swedish cinema
Sweden / Norway / Iceland
Swedish and English
(fördom och stolthet)
Prejudice & Pride is a rainbow-colored rollercoaster ride through a stunning collection of films. From Mauritz Stiller's filming of the world's first gay romance in 1916 to Sweden's exciting new wave of Scandinavian transgender films, there's plenty of gay people, drag kings and drag queens, revelations about Ingmar Bergman, 70s sexploitation camp and Greta Garbo glamour, along with all the highs and lows of the century-long struggle for queer liberation.
