Directed by Vilgot Sjöman | 1967

With Lena Nyman, Börje Ahlstedt, Peter Lindgren

“One of the most important pictures I have ever seen in my life.”
—Norman Mailer

A record-breaking sensation at the box office, I Am Curious (Yellow) was distributed stateside by Grove after the company fought a series of highly publicized, landmark legal battles that eventually led to the Supreme Court, weakening nationwide obscenity laws in the process and thus setting the stage for the legalization of sexually explicit films. Soft-core by today’s standards, this sensual hybrid of fiction and documentary—about a young woman exploring sex and radical politics in 1960s Sweden—lured in audiences for years, bankrolling Grove’s greater forays into film.
