Abstract [en]

The 1950s was a decade of major social transformation in Sweden when the welfare state was being realized, and it has been suggested (Gunnemark, 2006) that the youth of this age became proponents of modernity, caught between the old and the new structures of society. With the film Hon dansade en sommar (One Summer of Happiness, 1951) as a reference, this chapter discusses how youth became more defined as category and identity in Sweden in the post-war period through its relation to leisure culture, not least cinema. Cinema had evolved in rural areas as part of a modern associational culture with progressive roots in the temperance movement and oppositional roots in the worker’s movement. In the post-war period, the government supported this culture and contributed to its expansion. It became a space in which youth throughout the country could come together, or individually, and submit themselves to, as well as reflect upon, images and narratives of the rapid and intense ongoing changes.

Abstract [en]

The 1950s to the mid1970s marks the final phase of urbanization in Sweden and full implementation of the Social democratic welfare state. It’s a period of prosperity in which the industries and their workforce are celebrated and provide models and standards also for other wakes of society and life.

In the year 1956 cinema going peaked in Sweden! Seven years later the number of cinema tickets sold had cut back by half and continued to dwindle. Is television to be blamed?

For the rural and industrial region of Bergslagen we will present a cinema location analysis that identifies the venues that persisted with film exhibition 1956-76. The map is layered with data on population density, ownership of television sets, entertainment hubs and transportation routes. An analysis will address the hypothesis (1) that cinema more or less perished in rural areas (2) as a result of the dissemination of television. We seek to complicate the history of rural cinema by exploring social, cultural and geographical relations in the region. The result is an attempt at writing rural industrial history taking leisure as a point of departure, rather than the more established practice of organizing the historical narrative around “work”.

Abstract [en]

Film exhibition was a regular and common feature in hundreds of multipurpose venues owned by local divisions of the temperance and labor movements in Sweden since the beginnings of film. I argue that the investment by civil society in film exhibition is important to understanding Swedish film history and culture at large. It provides an interesting case of blurred boundaries between the state, civil society and the commercial film industry. Film exhibition in the venues provided income for maintaining the venues per se, thus encouraging the continued existence of grassroots progressive activity also after the democratic breakthrough. At the same time, it offered an opportunity for its largely rural audience to participate in the national disciplinary project of gathering the people of the modern welfare state under the auspices of its own spaces.

Abstract [en]

The short subject argues that the short animated film, Sagan om Karl-Bertil Jonssons julafton/Christopher's Christmas Mission, which is screened annually on Swedish public service television to the delight of around a million spectators, offers sharp satire criticizing lingering class inequalities in the 1970s, despite decades of Social Democratic rule.

Abstract [en]

This article is a contribution to the ‘new cinema history’ vein of media studies concerning the experience of American films in foreign, local contexts. It explores the cinema memory discourse of senior citizens living in a post-industrial mining region in central Sweden. The informants offer a variety of narrative strategies of cinema memory that can be related to social differences within the group based on class, membership in social societies and local geopolitics. The informants also take care to mention Swedish films and actors in more or less equal proportion and with similar enthusiasm compared to American ones, yet Swedish film has only had a limited amount of screen time throughout the age of cinema. The elderly informants’ cinema memories are constructed in dual terms: on the one hand acknowledging traits of cinema culture in terms of glamour, sincerity and novelty tied to the dominant Hollywood fare and on the other hand taking care to anchor the experience of cinema-going in a strong sense of national community. The contention is that the informants are evoking a cinema-going culture that caters to a deeply felt human need of belonging, and this belonging is identified with the prosperous Swedish post-war nation state.
