About the film

EVERLASTING MOMENTS
Sweden 2008 131min. G
Directed by Jan Troell
Starring Maria Hseikanen, Mikael Persbrandt

In Sweden in the early 1900s, "Everlasting Moments" chronicles the life of Maria Lawson (Maria Heiskanen), an immigrant from Finland who uses a camera she wins in a lottery to document her life. Maria works with her camera to support her children while tolerating frequent abuse from Sigfrid (Mikael Persbrandt), her womanizing and alcoholic husband. Maria's daughter Maja, who vividly presents her mother's strength and dignity in the face of considerable hardship, narrates the film.


Bechdel Tested is curated by Erica Shiner, Michal Stein, Cayley James, and Jaime Redford.
