I AM CURIOUS (YELLOW) is a 1967 Swedish drama film written and directed by Vilgot Sjöman and starring Sjöman and Lena Nyman.
It is a companion film to 1968's I AM CURIOUS (BLUE); the two were initially intended to be one 3-hour film. The films are named after the colours of the Swedish flag.

Director Vilgot Sjöman plans to make a social film starring his lover Lena Nyman, a young theater student who has little interest in social issues.

Lena, aged twenty, wants to know all she can about life and reality. She collects information on everyone and everything, storing her findings in an enormous archive. She experiments with relationships, political activism, and meditation. Meanwhile, the actors, director and crew are shown in a humorous parallel plot about the making of the film and their reactions to the story and each other.

Seized by customs upon entry to the United States, subject of a heated court battle, and banned in numerous cities, Vilgot Sjöman's I AM CURIOUS (YELLOW) is one of the most controversial films of all time. This landmark document of Swedish society during the sexual revolution has been declared both obscene and revolutionary. It tells the story of Lena (Lena Nyman), a searching and rebellious young woman, and her personal quest to understand the social and political conditions in 1960s Sweden, as well as her bold exploration of her own sexual identity. I AM CURIOUS (YELLOW) is a subversive mix of dramatic and documentary techniques, attacking capitalist injustices and frankly addressing the politics of sexuality.

Prohibited under 16 years old

The film was created in two parts: I AM CURIOUS (BLUE) is the 2nd part.
