Women of the revolution2021 / 10 / 07
Last monday, the Brand New Content documentary "#Metoo - Hösten som förändrade Sverige", premiered to public acclaim. Commissioned by pubcaster SVT, the 8 x 30 min series tells the story of what happened when the global #Metoo-movement struck Sweden in 2017.
No accused perpetrators are named in the series, which instead focuses on the structural problems and the deeply personal experiences that women from all walks of life share with the viewers, many of them for the first time.
The result is a documentary that uncovers the systematic harassment and abuse that shaped the character of the whole movement in Sweden.
"An ambitious portrait of a political movement that has been both liberating and traumatic. It is four hours of burning contemporary history", writes Malin Krutmeijer at Aftonbladet.
