Punk Voyage

Press kit

In December 2016 a remarkable chapter in music history was closed as the Finnish punk rock band Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät (PKN) retired. Punk Voyage is a feature length documentary film about the last years of the band, with all the ups and downs included.

After becoming celebrities in Finland, this incredible quartet (Kari, Sami. Toni, Pertti) continued to conquer new fans around the World. In its seven years run, PKN played nearly 300 gigs in 16 countries. In 2015 the band was selected to represent Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest.

The busy traveling and success though created a lot of pressure within the band. Kari struggled with the temptations and responsibilities brought by publicity, Sami extended his territory to politics and religion, Toni’s and the band’s roadie Niila’s crushing the same girl caused conflicts, and Pertti decided to retire.

Punk Voyage is a film about being true to yourself, making hard decisions and moving on in life. Sometimes smelly but an unforgettable journey full of drama, tears and laughter.
