VENOM (1966) SCANDINAVIAN SEX CINEMA O F THE 60s AND 70s

Jack Stevenson In Person Author of Scandinavian Blue

with VENOM (1966)
plus a couple of short âsurprisesâ

Members $9 ⢠Public $13(includes book signing & reception)

Jack Stevenson returns to Huntington to launch his new book Scandinavian Blue
with a rare screening of the 1966 Danish film Venom and a couple of short "surprises.â
Venom (deemed by Playboy to be an honest and clear-sighted film, "a jolt of shock therapy") deals with what was then an ultra-topical
issue: pornography, and caused immense controversy. The film tells the entertaining tale of a hedonistic young man who acquires a
camera which he uses to cause mischief by filming his friendsâ intimate moments and showing them to their parents.
Jack Stevensonâs new book Scandinavian Blue is a journey to the center of the modern Nordic sexual mythology that flourished
in the postwar years and held movie-goers in its naked embrace through the 70s. From the gentle Swedish naturalist films of the
50âs to controversial groundbreakers like I Am Curious (Yellow) that shattered censorship barriers in the 60âs, and on through to the
dawn of âLiberated Denmarkâ in the early 70âs when the radical new freedoms unleashed by the abolition of censorship turned
Copenhagen into a modern day Sodom and Gomorra, this was a journey from innocence to decadence. Author Jack Stevenson,
American expat living in Denmark for almost two decades, reveals how the films of this period created the lore of a mythic place where
love was free and the beautiful people had it together. So take a trip back to the epicenter of the sexual revolution and get intimate with
the sultry starlets and trend-setting motion pictures that had the whole Western world in heat, movies that sparked high profile court
cases in the US and UK and determined the very course of screen freedom
