The Punk Syndrome-web

Pretuiesc demnitatea, egalitatea si respectul. Nu vor sa traiasca in institutii de boli mentale „pentru ca fiecare are dreptul de a decide unde si cum vrea sa traiasca”. Canta despre orice, de la pedichiura, la indivizi aflati in pozitii de decizie care-si insala semenii, pana la sentimenele incercate atunci cand nu ti se da cafea pentru ca suferi de o dizabilitate mentala. Ortografia pare dificila uneori: oare cum se scrie ‘fiinta umana’ in finlandeza?

Filmat intr-un stil fly-on-the-wall energic, documentarul Sindromul Punk urmareste viata cotidiana a membrilor formatiei finlandeze Pertti Kurikka’s Name Day. Regizorii Jokka Kärkkäinen si J-P Passi documenteaza candid si empatic turneele, concertele, spaimele, conflictele, vietile amoroase si ciocnirile celor patru barbati – Kari, Pertti Sami si Toni – incantatori, dar perpetuu nepotriviti in context. Desi nu lipsesc momentele delicate care ne invita sa reflectam asupra eforturilor necesare din partea persoanelor cu dizabilitati (pentru a supravietui presiunii sociale) si din partea societatii (pentru a cataliza o schimbare de atitudine semnificativa), filmul ramane o privire optimista asupra vietilor sinuoase a patru oameni care refuza sa lase dizabilitatea mentala sa ii opreasca din a-si vedea de viata asa cum vor.

Proiecție organizată în colaborare cu One World Romania, warm-up al festivalului de film documentar dedicat drepturilor omului One World Romania, care va avea loc între 17 și 23 martie în București.

They prize dignity, equality and respect, and they do not want to live in mental institutions “because everyone has the right to make a decision about where and how they want to live“. They sing about everything, from pedicurists, to decision-makers who cheat, and to how you feel when you don’t get coffee because you have a mental disability. Spelling seems difficult at times: how would you spell ‘human being’ in Finnish?

Energetically shot fly-on-the-wall documentary The Punk Syndrome chronicles the life of idiosyncratically named Finnish band Pertti Kurikka’s Name Day. Filmmaker duo Jukka Kärkkäinen and J-P Passi shoot candidly and affectionately the tours, concerts, fears, frictions, love lives and personality clashes among the four charming misfits – Kari, Pertti, Sami and Toni – who are at the heart of the film. Although we occasionally bump into gloomier stories which remind us of the effort required from both disabled people and the rest of the society to change attitudes towards disability, this remains largely an upbeat celebration of four men who refuse to let mental disability stop them from making the most out of their lives.

This is not about crying, this is about punk.
