The new Finnish documentary Punk Voyage has been announced as one of the films screening at Helsinki’s Love and Anarchy Film Festival.
Punk Voyage is a documentary that follows the last years of the Finnish punk rock band Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät (PKN), who retired in 2016. After becoming celebrities in Finland, the band continued to get new fans around the world. In the seven years PKN played, they performed around three hundred concerts in sixteen countries. In 2015, the band represented Finland at the Eurovision Song Contest.
The Love and Anarchy Film Festival will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year. The festival’s Gala screenings will open with the US film Call Me By Your Name and will close with Ruben Östlund’s The Square. Additionally, two short film retrospectives will honour the Finnish writer, visual artist, and director Rosa Liksom as well as Swedish director Amanda Kernell, whose Sami Blood will also screen at the festival.
