Join us on June 12 for a screening of Prejudice & Pride – Swedish Film Queer (Fördom & Stolthet, dir. Eva Beling, 2022), a documentary and rainbow-colored roller coaster ride through the history of Swedish queer cinema! Director Eva Beling will be present for a film talk and Q&A after the screening.

How could it possibly take 100 years to see a same-sex kiss in Swedish feature film? Queer people have played many roles throughout the entire history of Swedish film, but early onscreen portrayals of queerness were often profoundly tragic. In this documentary, director Eva Beling blends footage from the Swedish Film Institute archives and interviews with many pioneers of Swedish cinema. These include director Marie-Louise Ekman, writer and performer Jonas Gardell and Rikard Wolff, whose character Zac in House of Angels was one of the first widely loved queer figures in cinema. She also spoke with other figures about Swedish queer cinema today, including Mian Lodalen, Saga Becker, Gösta Ekman, Levan Akin, Ella Lemhagen, Bruce LaBruce and others.
