The Punk Syndrome

Sat 21 Oct 2017

85mins

Four very unique Finnish musicians form a successful punk band known as Pertti Kurikka's Name Day.

Tickets: £7 / £6 Conc / £5 Students

BBFC: TBC

Finnish punk rock band Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät are members Pertti, Kari, Toni and Sami. They all have learning disabilities and play their music with attitude and pride. They laugh, cry, drink, and fight over who gets to sit at the front of the tour bus.

Their songs are about problems in society, as well as about things they face in everyday life: how going to the pedicurist sucks, and the misery of living in a group home. They give a piece of their minds both to politicians and to people whose attitudes towards those with intellectual disabilities need improvement.

*Please note this screening is in the Playhouse Studio.
