Abstract

In this manifesto for “porn art,” Swedish director Vilgot Sjöman, best known for his films I Am Curious (Yellow) (Jag är nyfi ken—gul, Sweden, 1967), and I Am Curious (Blue) (Jag är nyfi ken—blå, Sweden, 1968), traces the history of the representation of sexuality in the cinema from the censorship breakthroughs of the late 1960s through to the late 1970s and the arrival of soft-core porn films like Emmanuelle (Just Jaeckin, France, 1974). Sjöman argues that sexual representation needs to be brought into art cinema and not simply be marginalized into pornography. To this extent, his demands for a new kind of representation of sexuality in the cinema foreshadow the arrival of cinéma brut and New French Extremism.
