Jag är nyfiken, en film i blått = I am curious - blue by Vilgot Sjöman( Visual )

14 editions published between 1968 and 2003 in Swedish and English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I Am Curious (Blue)" and" I Am Curious (Yellow)" were originally produced as one continuous motion picture in 1967, but were then edited and released as two separate films. "I Am Curious (Blue)" was released in 1968 and "I Am Curious (Yellow)" the year before. Prior to making these films, Vilgot Sjöman was a novelist and scriptwriter and had collaborated with Ingmar Bergman on "Winter's Light". Sjöman directed several films in Sweden before achieving international success with "I Am Curious Yellow" and "I Am Curious Blue". Both films were extremely successful outside of Sweden, benefiting from extensive publicity generated by the court cases and censorship that dogged the films in the U.S. and the U.K. In "I Am Curious Blue", director Vilgot Sjöman, explores religion, the Swedish prison system, and sexuality, employing a mix of dramatic and documentary techniques to create a picture of modern life in Stockholm circa 1968. "The lovemaking throughout is neither titillating, mechanical, bourgeois nor deeply significant; but casual and free, filled with warmth, strife and experimentation ... But the sex scenes (at least on first viewing) overshadow the film's main theme, the attack on the values (or the lack of values) of the Swedish welfare state and contemporary society in general." Amos Vogel

Jag är nyfiken. I am curious. A yellow film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in Swedish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Seized by customs upon entry to the United States, subject of a heated court battle, banned in cities across the United States, Vilgot Sjoman’s I Am Curious—Yellow is one of the most controversial films of all time. This landmark document of Swedish society during the sexual revolution has been declared both obscene and revolutionary. It tells the story of Lena (Lena Nyman), a searching and rebellious young woman, and her personal quest to understand the social and political conditions in 1960s Sweden, as well as her bold exploration of her own sexual identity.. Shattering taboos as it freely traverses the lines between fact and fiction, I Am Curious—Yellow is presented here for the first time with its companion piece I Am Curious—Blue, a parallel film featuring the same characters and in which the lines between documentary and fiction are even further blurred
