COMEDIANS is a short film and BFA graduation project by Johanna Nyberg at Beckmans College of Design Stockholm, Sweden, 2016. Based on female representation in film, I have explored the subject of humour from a gender perspective. Men still dominate the comedy scene and set the standard for what we consider to be funny.
Inspired by interviews with female comedians in Sweden I wanted to present their experiences in the field of comedy. Is humour as free and unconditional for women as it is for men?
