I Am Curious—Yellow

Jag är nyfiken - en film i gult

Directed by Vilgot Sjöman
Sweden, 1967
  • German, Swedish
  • French, German


This landmark document of Swedish society during the sexual revolution has been declared both obscene and revolutionary. It tells the story of a searching and rebellious young woman’s personal quest to understand the social and political conditions in 1960s Sweden, and her own sexual identity.

Our take

Companion piece to I Am Curious – Blue , this sexually-explicit and controversial cinéma vérité style coming-of-age story neatly navigates a young woman’s social and political liberation. Influenced heavily by the French New Wave, and of course, Vilgot Sjöman’s compatriot Ingmar Bergman.
