Daddy and the Muscle Academy: Art, Life and Times of Tom of Finland


“This film gives voice to the life and creative impulse of the gay erotic artist known throughout the homosexual world as Tom of Finland. Featuring an interview with the artist himself, filmed shortly before he died, Daddy and the Muscle Academy is a unique view into one man’s mysterious world.
Tom describes his early life in the Finnish army, in mundane jobs and, matter-of-factly, how he became inspired to put onto paper his exagerrated masculine fantasies of men in leather, uniforms and workwear.
Most of the interview is shot in the stillness of Tom’s apartment/studio, with the film broken into segments centering on themes of his work: depiction of black men and women, technique, use of models and leather as his muse: “”I put on a special outfit””, he explains, “”if I need to be inspired””.
