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 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, where
they played to over 100 million television


However, the busy traveling and success 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 crush to the the
same girl caused conflicts; and Pertti, tired of this all,
decided to retire.


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