Tom of Finland - Irish Premiere

Saturday 05 August, 20:30

Tom of Finland is the beautiful and thrilling true story of Finnish artist Touko Laaksonen and his journey to international success.

Upon returning home from serving his country in World War II, Touko finds Finland is a bleak and moralistic place, where homosexuality is illegal and furtive sexual encounters are common. To amuse himself and his friends, he starts to draw muscular, uninhibited and proud gay men; artwork completely at odds with his regular life creating corporate content for a soulless advertising agency. His drawings soon lead Touko to Berlin and Los Angeles, where his art reaches a wide audience, becoming widely symbolic in fanning the flames of the gay movement.

A timeless biopic of a world famous cult figure, Tom of Finland brings to screen the life and work of one of the most influential and celebrated figures of twentieth century gay culture.
