Scandi Femmes Take On Erotica

Producer Anders Birkeland is hoping to revive Scandinavian film erotica – this time through female eyes.

Birkeland is preparing a series of six half-hour shorts, which are to air on tv as well as screen theatrically. All will be directed Scandi women, including Sweden’s Suzanne Osten and Agneta Fagerstrom, Denmark’s Helle Ryslings and Norway’s Ania Breien. The scripts are by such Swedish authors as Lars Noren, Kristina Lugn and Ann-Marie Berglund.

Birkeland says, “I want these films to be very provocative and sexually arousing, to break borders.” He admits that this means that the films can never be shown on strict Norwegian tv.

Birkeland hopes production will start this year.
