"Curious Yellow" Director Dead at 81

Swedish film director Vilgot Sjöman has died at the age of 81.

Sjöman is most famous for his two controversial commentaries on life in Sweden in the late 60’s: “I am Curious Yellow” and “I am Curious Blue”. Both were denounced at the time as too sexually explicit.

In recent years Sjöman had been involved in a legal suit against a Swedish television channel which he said violated the integrity of his work by inserting commercials.
