Svensk stumfilms guldalder og det ‘særlige nordiske’

Fra lørdag den 30. september løber en filmserie om svensk stumfilms guldalder med titlen The Swedish Challenge over lærredet ved stumfilmfestivalen i den norditalienske by Pordenone. Dette nummer af Kosmorama er helliget seriens film. For når talen falder på svensk stumfilms storhedstid, handler det næsten altid kun om Victor Sjöströms og Mauritz Stillers værker. Og så glider andre mindeværdige film ud i glemslens mørke.

Kosmorama kaster i seks engelsksprogede artikler lys over svensks guldalders oversete værker og deres afsmitning på nabolandenes filmproduktion, og på hvad det egentlig er, der forstås ved det ‘særlige nordiske’, som periodens film ofte eksponerer.
Bo Florin diskuterer den svenske film Synnöve Solbakken (1919), som er baseret på en novelle af den norske forfatter og Nobelprisvinder Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson.
Of Unknown Origin
Identity, Nationality, and Ethnicity in "Gipsy Anne" (1920)
Gunnar Iversen analyserer en af norsk filmhistories vigtigste stumfilm, Rasmus Breisteins Fante-Anne og dens livtag med spørgsmål om etnicitet, nationalitet, køn og klasseforskelle.
The Woman’s Point of View: 
"Thora van Deken" (1920)
Casper Tybjerg skriver om den eneste film, der er lavet over et forlæg af den danske Nobelpristager Henrik Pontoppidan, nemlig den svenske film Thora van Deken fra 1920.
 
Vito Adriaensens fremholder i sin artikel Sjöströms oversete periodefilm Vem dömer som et mesterværk på niveau med andre af instruktørens langt mere anerkendte film.
Following the Swedish Model:
The Transnational Nature of Finnish National Cinema in the Early 1920s
Jaakko Seppälä demonstrerer i sin artikel, hvorfor og hvordan svensk film blev forbilledet for finske filmskabere i de tidlige 1920’ere.
Nordic Landscape Discourse in Scandinavian Silent Cinema:
"Morænen", Nature, and National Character

Anne Bachmann analyserer, hvordan forskellige repræsentationer og opfattelser af nordisk natur og nationalkarakter præger skandinavisk stumfilm i 1920’erne.

The “Golden Age” of Swedish cinema

2017 marks the centennial of the start of what later has become known as the “Golden Age” of Swedish cinema. Most accounts of the Swedish "Golden Age" focus almost exclusively on the films of Victor Sjöström and Mauritz Stiller, leaving out other Swedish directors who made films in the same style and hence many wonderful films have slipped from view.

This issue of Kosmorama aims to broaden the conception of the Swedish “Golden Age” and to illuminate its impact on the neighboring film industries of Denmark, Norway and Finland. It is published in collaboration with this years’ Pordenone Festival series, The Swedish Challenge, and guest edited by Casper Tybjerg.
In this article, Bo Florin discusses the Swedish 1919 film Synnöve Solbakken (A Norway Lass), directed by John Brunius from a short story by the Norwegian author and Nobel prize winner Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson.
Of Unknown Origin
Identity, Nationality, and Ethnicity in "Gipsy Anne" (1920)
Gunnar Iversen analyses one of the most important feature films in Norwegian film history, Rasmus Breistein’s Fante-Anne  (Gipsy Anne) in the context of Norwegian and Scandinavian early silent cinema, and questions of identity, nationality and ethnicity, as well as gender and class difference.
The Woman’s Point of View: 
"Thora van Deken" (1920)

Casper Tybjerg writes on the Swedish film Thora van Deken from 1920, a little-known and rarely seen, but strikingly well-made and well-acted psychological drama about a hard and uncompromising woman who commits a crime for her daughter’s sake.
The 1922 Renaissance period piece Vem dömer (Love’s Crucible/Mortal Clay) has all the trappings of a Victor Sjöström masterpiece, and yet it has curiously been overlooked. In his article, Vito Adriaensens aims to change that, reclaiming the film for the crucial part of the Swedish “Golden Age” that it is.
Following the Swedish Model:
The Transnational Nature of Finnish National Cinema in the Early 1920s
Taking Teuvo Puro’s 19th century period film Anna-Liisa (1922) as a case, Jaakko Seppälä demonstrates why Swedish cinema of the ”Golden Age” became an important model for Finnish filmmakers in the early 1920s.
.
Nordic Landscape Discourse in Scandinavian Silent Cinema:
"Morænen", Nature, and National Character
Anne Bachmann looks at different configurations of discourse about Nordic nature, national character, and the cinema in order to present a more precise idea of notions of cultural ownership in Scandinavian cinema culture of the 1920s.
