Swedish director Ninja Thyberg is a preeminent and talented contemporary filmmaker who, in just a short period of time, has succeeded in creating a unique signature style and becoming an international hit. Her nine short films take a fresh and playful approach to gender and social stereotypes, our understanding of our own bodies, and the relationship between power, desire, and sexuality. Thyberg’s feature film debut Passion, a follow-up to her eponymous short film, premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and the media has lauded its “unsettling authenticity.” The film takes an unflinching look behind the scenes of America’s porn industry; how to approach this taboo and myth-shrouded phenomenon will be the subject of our talk.
Hosted by Marta Balaga of Variety magazine.
