Daddy and the Muscle Academy

Daddy and the Muscle Academy

Directed by Ilppo Pohjola • 1992 • Finland

Renowned artist Tom of Finland (real name Touko Laaksonen) has exerted an enormous influence on gay identity, attitude, and self-understanding through his provocative, instantly recognizable drawings of muscle-bound, leather-clad men. This erotically charged documentary combines interviews with Laaksonen (recorded just prior to his death in 1992) and his leather-men acolytes with hundreds of his original drawings and steamy fantasy scenes inspired by his work.
