A Smorgasbord of Sin documentary 14min 2015
The burlesque scene tickles the fancy of the “vanilla” mainstream while also appealing to feminists
who see it as a safe haven for their sexuality. All kinds of body types are welcome. The scene
challenges our views on sexual stereotypes, norms and sexuality. At Stockholm’s Burlesque
Festival, we meet Nick the Dick, who is participating in The Tassle and Twirl Championship for
the first time; Aurora, a feminist; and Thorbjörn, who likes dressing up to challenge male stereotypes.
Director/Photographer/Producer, Johanna St Michaels. A co-production between Swedish
Television AB and Saint Michaels Production AB with the support of the Swedish Film Institute.
Premiere on Swedish Television,
