Description

Tom of Finland (2017)

Directed by Dome Karukoski

Dome Karukoski’s bio-pic about the pioneering artist and man behind the signature ‘Tom of Finland’ Touko Laaksonen, who hugely influenced gay liberation and culture. A moving account of Laaksonen’s personal sacrifices to comply with Finnish societal expectations and homophobia in post-war Finland, as well as a film of liberation, homo-erotic art and the artist’s contribution to mainstreaming eroticism in gay culture in Europe and the US. This is Finland’s Official Entry for the Foreign Language Oscar. Q&A with Chris Park of Merton LGBT+ Forum.

‘Entertainingly recounts an intriguing chapter of 20th-century gay history with style.’ Gary Goldstein, LA Times

Jakob Oftebro, Jessica Grabowsky, Werner Daehn, Pekka Strang
