" I never want to hear in the ståuppvärlden that there are funny women. It makes it! And I actually think the situation has improved, " says Nisti Stêrk.
After a stubborn presence of the centuries of nöjeshistoria, it seems the question of whether women can be funny finally överstökad and dated – now it barely even as a tired provocation. However, it was not many years ago the debate vevades in the replay, when the comedian and organiser Mårten Andersson claimed that ”the more women on the scene, the fewer in the audience”. For each move, and the storm of protest increases, hopefully awareness, mean Nisti Stêrk.
– Now gives Mårten Andersson at the Raw comedy club is the place for female comedians and that is great. He has also been generous with the clips that we have in the film. But it needed more scenes, it is not all women who want to make jokes, crude or vulgar in order to fit in. That is why it is so good with arrangements that run the stand-up, but men on the stage. We need to have it so? Yes, for a start, I think, actually.
myself many years of experience of being funny on stage. Now regidebuterar her as the dokumentärmakare – and in the Past Sweden Swedish komedienner have” is not the question of whether women can be funny, but about when, where, how. The project is an attempt to create a conversation about the conditions for female comedian in Sweden.
– It has felt like therapy, both for myself and for the participants! I did not know that all the others also had it like this, " says Nisti Stêrk.
She had the idea ten years ago and originally was the documentary intended as the third section in a åttadelad series on Swedish komedihistoria, but the interest from the SVT was cool. Now, when the ”Only Sweden Swedish komedienner has” finally is ready, it occurs against the background of metoorörelsen, where the Swedish female comedians gathered in the call #skrattetihalsen. In the autumn of 2017 ended up the situation for women in humorbranschen also in the limelight through Grotescos disputed section ”Ladies night”.

a variety of female comedians from different generations who share similar experiences: to be determined according to other yardsticks than their male colleagues, and to constantly represent all women.
– As a stand up comedian, you can definitely feel a responsibility towards the women in the audience. It is important to not make a fool of himself for their sake. Anna Blomberg talk about it there in the movie, " says Nisti Stêrk.
that is Why the ”Only Sweden Swedish komedienner have” not just about quality but also about quantity – that show that female comedians represent a sprawling collective.
" I have interviewed 27 women and dieted down to 21 hours 58 minutes. You can't have it all, someone will have to be cut away, I was told. No! Even if it is only a replica, they should be with. I wanted that the film would show that all of these komedienner actually are, " says Nisti Stêrk.
the Documentary draws attention to those that have been. Today's diversity of female comedians have not come out of the blue, but Nisti Stêrk mean that there is a lack of knowledge and interest in history. Who was really Hjördis Petterson? Or Nancy & Carina?
Perhaps there is an explanation for the historielösheten about the female pioneer in the male comedian has dominated the humorvärlden and therefore valued higher in the folkmedvetandet. In the documentary talking Annika Lantz, for example, how she was characterized by that look on and look up to the male comedian – to killkul was equal to the fun, end of story.
" this doesn't feel good to say but I have no relation to the black and white female comedians. They were valid votes and was näsvisa while I was one of the fellas, " says Annika Lantz in the ”Past Sweden Swedish komedienner have”.
Matinéfilmen became like a security blanket for me, in the old pilsnerfilmerna was a lot of fun ladies that reminded of my childhood
the entrance to the komedihistorien. In the documentary she describes how she learned English when she was engulfed by the SVT's matinéer in childhood. Love the black and white Swedish films told Nisti Stêrk, if already in its summer program in 2006 and in the play ”For Sweden in time!”, which premiered at the Maximteatern, 2007. To the book ”as long As God wants and the butt hold” from the following year borrowed her title from a Nils Poppe-quotes.
She was seven years old when she got stuck in front of the television in Tensta and saw a Swedish uncle in the hat, which reminded her of the grandfather that was left in Kurdistan. But in the ”Past Sweden Swedish komedienner have” she is also personal links to the movie female characters.
– Matinéfilmen became like a security blanket for me, in the old pilsnerfilmerna was a lot of fun ladies that reminded of my childhood, " says Nisti Stêrk.
She explains how she could see her grandmother in Julia Caesar and his aunt in Dagmar Ebbesen – energetically women, who do not hesitate to bark at his men.
" I wanted the young generation would get to know the older generation. It is through humor that we get to know each other the best. I have interviewed 27 women and actually, I would like to do a section on all of them, or at least five paragraphs that tell the entire story from Hjördis Petterson Clara Henry, says Nisti Stêrk.
Now is the 1930 - and 40-century Swedish films not only referred to the matinésändningar, but has been celebrated in several high-profile dvd-boxes. It is not just about Nils Poppe or pilsnerfilmer with Thor Modéen, but also about the female paradgenren in front of the other: hembiträdesfilm.
In Stêrks documentary tells Maria Lundqvist about how she was inspired by the harsh and emphatic Julia Caesar, while Sissela Kyle looks like his favorite Dagmar Ebbesen at a mix between Oliver Hardy and Meryl Streep.the Aim of the documentary is not to young female comedians necessarily be inspired by the just huskors in Swedish pilsnerfilm, but to create an awareness and curiosity of the story, tells Nisti Stêrk.

do not know them at all and when Nisti Stêrk asked nittiotalisterna Clara Henry and Gina Dirawi about Swedish models unscrewed the.
"Hmmm, I have closely no role models," replied the first. But when I asked them again and they got to thinking after a while said to both: Annika Lantz. There was a kaxighet and a self-confidence that they could relate to, " says Nisti Stêrk.
the Purpose of the documentary is not to young female comedians necessarily be inspired by the just huskors in Swedish pilsnerfilm, but to create an awareness and curiosity of the story, tells Nisti Stêrk. There are examples of pioneering female comedian closer in time also has fallen into oblivion.
" I think a turn came up with Nancy & Carina. They were so different. The daring kissing on tv, long before Madonna kissed Britney Spears! They dared to be too much and paved the way for the other. Then we have seen the Reuter and Skoog, Mia and Klara, Bianca and Tiffany, " says Nisti Stêrk.
Nancy & Carina consisted of Anna-Lena Bergelin and Lill-Marit Bugge, which incorporated the berlin undergroundkultur and a intense libido in the Swedish public service humor through the program ”Daily live” in 1987.
When I showed my film at the Gothenburg film festival there were two young women in the audience who wanted to know more. Why have we not heard of them before? Why isn't Nancy & Carina on the SVT Play?
" Yes, emailing the SVT, that was the idea!
