Join EEFF for a night in honour of everyone’s favourite Finnish Daddy, Touko Laaksonen – a.k.a. Tom of Finland, as we unveil the London Premiere of Tom of Finland followed by a Q&A with free drinks courtesy of Tom of Finland Vodka, and a leather clad afterparty at legendary venue The Glory!
Tom of Finland + Q&A
Dome Karukoski’s thrilling biopic charts the personal journey of Touko ‘Tom’ Laaksonen (played by a towering Pekka Strang) through the twentieth century following the harrowing experience of WW2, with his buff, leather-clad erotic art eventually bringing him fame and an iconic legacy. A story of coming out, coming to America, biceps and heavy, heavy leather.
See Tom of Finland at Hackney Picturehouse at 9pm on Friday 30 June, with free drinks provided by Tom of Finland Vodka! Get your tickets at the venue box office, only 20 left!
