The SVT-drama ”Don’t Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves” won the Audience Award at the Séries Mania Festival in Paris, April 22nd-28th 2013, in competition with series such as ”Game of Thrones” and ”The Walking Dead”.
The series is a powerful love story in the shadow of AIDS, set in Stockholm in the 1980′s. It was hailed by critics and attracted a huge audience when aired in Sweden in the fall of 2012.
We have recently added two new titles to our catalogue, both from SVT’s current affairs programme ”Mission: Investigate”.
Men’s Web Hate on Women
The Internet is flooded with sexual harassment and death threats, mostly aimed at women. Why does some men feel free to write just about anything to women who takes a stand on the web? This reportage takes a closer look at the phenomenon of Internet hate and we meet women who are used to receiving severe threats. We also meet 21-year-old Julia, a Swedish girl who wrote a post on clothing giant H&M’s Facebook page and received thousands of threatening and humiliating comments.
