Nordic National Cinemas will study the history of film production in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and especially Sweden, examining the social and political context and domestic audience in each country. We will trace the development of these cinemas from their origins to the golden years of film-making in the 1920s and 1930s, to film production and censorship during WWII, to the new-realism of the 1950s and 1960s, and up through the internationally successful films of recent years, noting along the way the influence of American cinema. We will focus on the most famous films of such internationally-recognized film-makers as Mauritz Stiller, Victor Sjöstrom, Carl Dreyer, Ingmar Bergman, Billie August, and Lars von Trier, as well as some nationally important film-makers such as Gustaf Molander, Gabriel Axel, Aki Kaurismaki. We will stress the idea that Nordic cinema is the cinema of five different national traditions.
