Swedish with Turkish subtitles
Late in the evening on February 28th, 1986, Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme and his wife walked home from seeing a film. Palme was fatally shot and killed by an unknown assassin. The murder was never solved. Maud Nycander and Kristina Lindström’s encompassing portrait of Palme began as a means to reassess the former prime minister’s legacy, separate from the drama and horror of his death. More than 26 years have passed since Palme was assassinated, but he remains a divisive figure in Swedish society. Outspoken, courageous, and an advocate for women’s rights, environmentalism, and the peace movement, Palme almost single-handedly changed global views about Sweden. Nycander and Lindström’s film portrait offers an encompassing view both of the man and of his era with never-before-seen footage released by the Palme family.
1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
