Tom of Finland

Dome KarukoskiDome Karukoski’s stirring biopic follows the life of artist Touko Laaksonen who is best known as “Tom of Finland” from the trenches of WWII and repressive Finnish society of the 1950s through his struggle to get his work published in California, where he and his art were finally embraced amid the sexual revolution of the 1970s. Tom’s story mirrors the gay liberation movement for which his leather-clad studs served as a defiant emblem.

Tom of Finland opens in New York on October 13 and October 20 in both San Francisco and Los Angeles before expanding to select cities.

This past Spring Boston’s LGBTQ Film Festival a.k.a. Wicked Queer, showcased the Portuguese film, The Ornithologist. The film returns to the Boston area and will play at The Brattle Theatre starting Friday, Sept. 1st.

ABOUT THE ORNITHOLOGIST: Director João Pedro Rodrigues reimagines the myth of Saint Anthony of Padua as a modern-day parable of sexual and spiritual transcendence. On a bird-watching expedition in the remote wilderness, Fernando (Paul Hamy) capsizes and loses his bearings. His ensuing odyssey, both intensely physical and wildly metaphysical, involves sadistic Chinese pilgrims, a deaf-mute shepherd named Jesus, pagan tribes, Amazons on horseback, and a glorious variety of feathered friends.
