‘Asta’s ink: The Stockholm letters
2012 (English)In: Journal of Scandinavian Cinema, ISSN 2042-7891, Vol. 2, no 1, 5-11 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article offers a condensed account of Asta Nielsen's interaction with the Swedish National Censorship Board in 1911 after the banning of her film In dem großen Augenblick/The Great Moment for screening in Sweden. Her strategy, publishing open letters and inviting representatives from the press to non-public screenings, set the standard for other film companies dissatisfied with the slew of bans issued by the Board. A Nielsen letter to young movie fans, published in facsimile in a Swedish fan magazine in 1920, is translated to illustrate a different type of press interaction a decade later.
