Christina Lindberg Master Class will take place on Friday, July 19th at 21.15h at the Culture House.
Christina Lindberg is one of the most remarkable icons of 70s exploitation cinema. Her role of one-eyed avenger in cult classic Thriller: A Cruel Picture inspired Quentin Tarantino for his Kill Bill movies. Even before that, her roles in sexploitation movies made her Sweden’s sex symbol No.1.
Over the course of the 70s, she appeared in 23 films, from Scandinavian erotica (Maid in Sweden, Exponerad), German sex comedies (Schulmädchen-Report 4, Was Schulmädchen verschweigen) and collaboration with American sexploitation auteur Joe Sarno (Every Afternoon, Young Playthings) to Norifumi Suzuki’s cult pinku eiga extravaganza Sex and Fury. Standing out from the rest is Thriller: A Cruel Picture, a completely unique fusion of arthouse aesthetics, sexploitation and shocking violence, where she portrays one of the most iconic genre heroines with unmatched intensity.
In the 80s, she became a journalist and is now the editor-in-chief of the aviation magazine Flygrevyn. She is also an animal rights activist and an environmentalist. After reprising her role from Thriller in comedy Sex, Lies and Video Violence (2000) and appearing in short film No Come Down (2009), she will present her new horror film Black Circle at this year’s Grossmann. It is directed by Adrián García Bogliano, winner of the Vicious Cat 2016 for Scherzo Diabolico.
