N.p. N.p., Circa 1967. Draft script for the 1967 Swedish film, translated into English, photocopied for internal distribution. With copied holograph annotations to virtually every page.
Vilgot Sjoman's controversial erotic drama, utilizing both dramatic and documentary filmmaking techniques, starring Sjoman's lover at the time, actress Lena Nyman, as a young theater student examining the social and political mores of 1960s Sweden, and her own sexuality. Seized by customs upon entry to the US and banned from numerous US cities for sexually explicit scenes, it was found, in 1969, not to be obscene by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, opening the door to more frank and explicit subject matter in American film. The companion to Sjoman's 1968 film "I Am Curious (Blue)."
Set and shot on location in Stockholm.
