A theatre company is touring with Aristophanes’ play Lysistrata, in which Athenian women withhold sexual privileges from their men in order to suspend the war and make peace. The personal lives of the three leading actresses – excellently played by Bibi Andersson, Harriet Andersson and Gunnel Lindblom – echo the plot of the play. Mai Zetterling’s feminist film was widely criticized at its release, but has since gained praise and is now considered a masterpiece, ahead of its time.

Direction: Mai Zetterling, cast: Bibi Andersson, Harriet Andersson, Gunnel Lindblom, Gunnar Björnstrand, Erland Josephson, 1968, Sweden, 35 mm (Swedish Film Institute), 1 hr 40 min, Swedish, English subtitles, available from 11 years
