How Sophia Herring and Sweden’s #MeToo Campaign Change Sexist Scenarios

Unlike Saga Noren, Sofia Helin smiles as she likes. I’ve seen her smile, that’s fine. The thing she hates is having to smile. Especially on the red carpet where you are besieged by photographers. “What do you want to know about worst? When they say:” More teeth, please! “What am I? Some kind of horse? A smile is ok, but it must be voluntary, not obligatory.

This partly explains why Sofia Helin did not smile at the camera when she entered the Swedish Oscars (“Golden Beetles”) at Stockholm’s Cirkus at night. In addition there are more than 100 Swedish actresses to work with them. They all wear black #tystnadtagning T-shirts. The slogan means “Silence, Action”, which is what the director said when Sweden started scrolling in Sweden. It is also the thematic label for the #metoo campaign in Sweden, protesting against sexual exploitation and discrimination inside and outside the film industry.

“We also wear comfortable shoes,” said Herring. She hates anything that stops her from running. She added: “There is no fashion statement that women are uncomfortable.When she recently saw some of her colleagues:” I can see they can not breathe. Everything is too tight. Just like they are in a cheap sexy corsets.

Nor like Saga Noren, Sophia and Lin are articulate, good companies. She usually does not drive Porsche 911 or wear leather pants, just like her screen changes itself, but she still has Saganorlan scars. This is the scars on her upper lip, with viewers reviewing again in the UK during the fourth and last seasons of spring. Scar is real. When she fell off the bike, she picked it up in her twenties, but now she has become part of her role, making her look like a tough and vulnerable warrior who has been through several battles. Actually, she has. I asked her about sexual harassment in Sweden. She said: “I simply quoted the fantastic Sharon Stone.” I’ve seen it all.

An Australian fan contacted Instagram (“actress_sofia_helin”) via Instagram and wrote that he knew of a clinic where she could go to a scar surgery and get it “fixed.” He said it will be “changing life.” He Lin replied: “I love my wounds. Do you love you?

Challenging structure
As a precursor student of philosophy, Herring is now over 40 years old and married a pastor of the Swedish Lutheran Church, with two children, a fourteen-year-old boy and an eight-year-old girl. Her obsession with the immediate “happiness” of individuals – “Anyway?” – and keen to influence the world. “When I was old, I would review my life and think about my choices. Feel I will do some things will be very happy.

He and Lin invited me to meet her at the Riviera Hotel in Stockholm. Her friend and sister of the movie, accompanied by her, wrote an article disproving the recent Katherine Denaf Anti-MeToo manifesto.

“If someone rapes you, it’s not sexual freedom,” she said succinctly. Both of them were involved in the Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet, causing the asymmetry of “money and power” in the Swedish film industry. They also like Swedish tobacco products – you can see Saga Noren jumping into her mouth and pushing her gums. They assured me: “Writing is good.

Occasionally they also introduced me to Björn Ulvaeus, the Swedish pop group Abba, who now has glasses and an academic atmosphere and is passionate about what they are doing. He said we live in a post-patriarchal era. ‘thank you. ‘

Stockholm in January 2018 feels a bit like Paris in May 1968, with the same passion and ferment but more snow. Moa Gallen said: “It’s like a revolution.” Only a peaceful revolution ”

This movement has 70,000 female supporters in Sweden. And it’s also going global. After Helin and #tystnadtagning held last year, they received news from some female Peshmerga soldiers through their FaceBook page to fight ISIS. They say we are fighting in the same battle.

And Lam just came back from Cambodia, where she was Ambassador of WaterAid. And they are also linked to Time’s Up in Hollywood. But there is no name in Sweden. All this is about the “structure” that must change, not to demonize Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey personally. Herring said: “Create a monster can be exempt from our responsibility.

Change the script
When I spoke to Stellen Skarsgaard, the bad guy in The Dragon Tattoo Girl, who won the Borg Best Supporting Actor award (about tennis player Bjorn Borg), he said that Hollywood ” Illuminate the problem “Now we need to find a solution. You have to start thinking about what to do next. And Lin and her colleagues are changing the script in a very pragmatic way.

Kazuhide likes the “Bridge” shot in the long winter. It must be dim and gray as they stop shooting once any buds begin to appear. This is black, not green – so the daffodil comes out.

The bridge was conceived and written by Hans Rosenfeldt, he wrote. Together they figured out Saga Noren’s role as a layman outside of the detective, socially incapacitated, with something like Asperger, and his most famous chat line was Vill du har sex ?. (‘Do you want to make love?’)

But now he and Lin are now more committed to projects that are mostly composed and written by women for women. She cites and laughed at all the plays, movies and stories written by men, including a woman who is either crazy or suicidal: it is both: Madame Bovary, Anna Karenina, Miss Julie, Haida Gabriel, Shakespeare.

Sophia Helin is both New Ingrid Bergman and creative power. Inspired by her experiences with blacks in northern Europe, she presented an original idea of ​​a television series of four female lawyers to be shot later this year. She quickly pointed out that she was in a privileged position globally.

Swedish actress is really lucky. However, we are having an impact on less fortunate women around the world. It should not be all outward appearances. How do you look? This is about the story you have to tell.

Waiting for wonderful
Herring cites the tragic fate of Marilyn Monroe: “She was an intellectual who was forced to appear short, and she did not think Swedish actress Greta Garbo should be called” The Face. ”

“It’s like you’re falling into your face, just knowing your looks, and it’s no wonder she dropped out at the age of 35,” she said.

Helin does not want to be “face” with or without scars. On the other hand, she did not want to “become invisible”, which is what happened to so many aging actresses. She said you should not have a “best” date.

Garbo famously said: ‘I just want to be alone. And the opposite forest. She is a group, gregarious, unwilling to talk about themselves and their own careers. “We stood in the spotlight as if there was a competition between us, one woman versus the other, but now the actress has found solidarity.” Our strength comes from working with other women. I am very grateful to acting, but very lonely. I long for women’s family.

In a speech on the stage of the Golden Beetle, Sofia Helin mentioned Nora’s speech at the end of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House. Finally, she poured the clumsy husband, Nora said she was waiting for ‘vidunderliga’ but never – now she was leaving, and we heard the door behind her.

And I’m trying to make the correct English equivalent for vidunderliga. He Lin first proposed “amazing”, we narrow it down to “wonderful”, “magical” and “sublime” between. “It may not be possible to describe it in words, but she always recognizes it when we meet it, and I will certainly realize that I am sitting in the lounge at the Grand Hotel Stockholm,” she said. , Or at home looking at Sagano Nolan.
