Kvinnliga meningsskapare - en feministisk och intersektionell analys av två nya svenska filmer


  • Edith Haggren

Summary, in English

This essay analyzes two new Swedish movies: The Reunion (Återträffen, 2013) and Something Must Break (Nånting måste gå sönder, 2014). How do the female leading characters in these movies relate to the patriarchal conventions described by Laura Mulvey nearly 40 years ago? Based on Mulveys theories, and supplemented by american as well as swedish scholars, the depiction, hierarchy and object/subject position are discussed from a feminist and intersectional perspective.
