The video Pippi Examples consisted of short sequences in slow motion from the Pippi Longstocking films made around 1970.


Before Pippi Examples was "censored" the Swedish magazine BON (nr 2. 2001) published a interview with Palle Torsson were the video was discussed alongside stills images from the video. The intention with the video was to show how the common gaze had been sexualized since 1970.

A strong reaction from daily newspapers and the people involved with Pippi Longstocking started a debate. The issues were the moral implications of the video and the copyright. Swedish Film Industry (SF) announced that they promised to stop the video and the news spreed outside of sweden. SFs lawyers took action to stop the video via the Swedish court of law. Based on they copyright law they claimed the video was illegal. Palle Torsson tried to pursue the case but took the decision not to fight SF consider more then 1 million dollar in costs for the trial. In the end a settlement was made and all the copy’s of Pippi Examples were destroyed.

This does not mean that the project Pippi Examples is over. A book about the process and/or other material will available soon. The video, the debate and aftermath in general of Pippi Examples will be analyzed to try to deepen the understanding of what happen and why. Stay updated at palletorsson.com >> !
