restricted access Dirty Diaries Manifesto (Sweden, 2009)

Mia Engberg’s omnibus film Dirty Diaries (Sweden, 2009) brings together thirteen short straight and queer porn films made by Swedish feminists. The film led to some controversy over the use of public funds to produce pornography after the Swedish Film Institute funded the film to a total of 500,000 kr. In a similar manner to “Puzzy Power,” all of the Dirty Diaries shorts follow a series of statements of principles. Unlike Dogme ’95 the Dirty Diaries manifesto does not dictate a style so much as a feminist, queer positive philosophy of sexual representation.
