  • 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. However, their success created a lot of pressure within the band. 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.

  • Directors' Statement:
    When we finished The Punk Syndrome, we decided not to make a sequel. At the time, the very idea just seemed cheap and unimaginative – but not anymore. We decided to keep working with the band members because we like their company and the feeling seems mutual. Of course, this in itself wouldn’t be a good enough reason to make a film. But we were there when the story began and we feel that we have to be there when it ends, too.
