First Feature: "Daddy and the Muscle Academy" (1991)


Daddy and the Muscle academy (1991) Summary on IMDB
TOM OF FINLAND is one of the gay world's few authentic icons. His drawings have had an enormous influence on gay identity - not only on the visual appearance of gay people, but also on their attitudes and self-understanding.

DADDY AND THE MUSCLE ACADEMY is the only film ever made with Tom of Finland. The film uses a variety of visual elements, including:

Tom of Finland in his own words. Tom tells his own life story, starting with his childhood in rural Finland, and going on to the influence on him of WWII, his drawings and his experience in the United States. Tom also describes his drawing method and explains the personal and professional motives behind his drawings.

A retrospective of Tom's drawings. There are hundreds of Tom's original works, starting with his early childhood drawings and first sketches. The development of Tom's photorealistic style is illustrated using images from various magazines, books and posters spanning five decades. Tom's last color originals are also included.
Tom's men and their stories. Leather men from different parts of the United States talk about how Tom's drawings have influenced their own lives. There are also interviews with fellow artists Etienne and Nayland Blake, Bob Mizer of the Athletic Model Guild and Durk Dehner of the Tom of Finland Foundation.

Daddy and the Muscle Academy shows how Tom of Finland's work passed from being the private fantasies of a man in Europe to underground images that shaped a generation's ideas of how a gay man could look and act. - Tom's work is a blueprint for the appearance and attitudes of gay men in the latter part of the 20th century.

Tom of Finland's ultimate leather men are known and seen all over the world. They are key icons of Western visual culture.


Second Feature: "Tom of Finland" (2017)

This is the movie at which we had a gear invasion at the Ken theater last year. Did you miss it while it was in the theaters or want to see it again? Enjoy the movie with your Leather Brothers!

Tom of Finland (2017) Summary on IMDB
Touko Laaksonen, a decorated officer, returns home after a harrowing and heroic experience serving his country in World War II, but life in Finland during peacetime proves equally distressing. He finds peace-time Helsinki rampant with persecution of the homosexual men around him, even being pressured to marry women and have children. Touko finds refuge in his liberating art, specializing in homoerotic drawings of muscular men, free of inhibitions. His work - made famous by his signature 'Tom of Finland' - became the emblem of a generation of men and fanned the flames of a gay revolution.
