Book release for Diversity in the Swedish Film Heritage, 1890-1950 in Stockholm, 2016
The book presents scientific studies that explain how film impacts on human empathy as a starting point , then presents further understanding of the current times when film became an artform. Film as an art form came to Sweden after the major powers in Europe had colonized large parts of the world, during the heyday of racial thinking and at the time of mass emigration. The book addresses how this affected films and how film as such was introduced to a Swedish public, thanks to foreign entrepreneurs. Film quickly became the most popular form of entertainment, But what images did the films disseminate about different ethnic groups?
