12th Aug 2021 @ 8:00 pm – An intimate drama about the chance encounter of two men by the Finnish lakeside that casts the long-marginalized voices of sexual and ethnic minorities centre-stage in a story about the search for freedom, acceptance and a place to call home.

“I was first introduced to A Moment in the Reeds in 2018, when it was submitted to NIFF. Its portrayal of the purity of new love in a difficult setting, as well as it’s delicate cinematography made it a standout film that went on to win our Best Male Actor award, split between the two main actors. The film being Finnish made the choice even easier to select it to compliment the Tom of Finland exhibition.”Linnea Larsdotter

“In addition to getting the goods up in the exhibit, we wanted to spread the love for his artform and help inspire openness for self-expression, so we rolled out the TAME version to the world on our fresh Quicky Sticky material (our take on traditional peel-and-stick paper). Really, it’s way better than the run-of-the-mill removeable wallpaper on the market as it’s, among many things, more durable and slightly textured for an elevated look.

Anyway, these fiery fellas are only available at the museum’s physical and online shop, and we highly recommend you score some!!”

Cheers, Tom!
