They called it filth. It became a revolution.
The official feature film

This website is for the official Tom of Finland film production. It is developed in co-operation with Tom of Finland Foundation, Los Angeles. The film is an international co-production directed by the multiple award-winning Dome Karukoski.


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 and men around him even being pressured to marry women and have children. Touko finds refuge in his liberating art, specialising in homoerotic drawings of muscular men, free on inhabitations. 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.
