Kovasikajuttu (The Punk Syndrome), 2012, 85 minutes
There have been many documentaries made about rock musicians, but this one lays claim to true uniqueness. It follows the highs and lows of the hard-core band Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät, the members of which are all developmentally delayed but fully developed characters in this oddly inspiring film. Among other awards, a Best Documentary Jussi.
Note: Film shown again on Friday March 2nd at 2:00 p.m. at the Swedish Club, 1920 Dexter Avenue North, Seattle.
