Sweden: it’s brought us tinned herring, the Volvo station wagon, and more queer movies and movie stars than you could possibly imagine. At once riveting and illuminating, filmmaker Eva Beling takes viewers on a breathlessly entertaining ride through the history of LGBTQ+ cinema in her home country, and reveals its surprisingly seismic social impact on culture in Sweden and abroad in the western world. Whether it’s Greta Garbo producing gender-bending passion projects in pre-code Hollywood, digging deeper into the psychosexual dimensions of Ingmar Bergman’s Persona, a softcore exploitation boom, or seismic arthouse classics like Fucking Åmål, there’s no shortage of fascinating chapters in this largely untold story to American audiences. If you thought The Celluloid Closet and Disclosure taught you everything you needed to know, it’s time to bust out the ABBA Gold and take notes on your new favorite queer movies you never knew existed.
