Description: English title: 'Elvis & I - Finnish stories about the King'. Is there anyone who has influenced as many with their music and life as Elvis Aaron Presley? When Elvis rose to world fame in the late 1950s, he was a musical role model for many young people of the time. He later became a legend known throughout the world by his first name alone and whose radius only grew after the star's death. Atte Varsta (b. 1969) has been an Elvis fan since he was seven years old. Later, thanks to Elvis, he became interested in building the brand and traveled around the United States in Elvis' footsteps. The King himself was already dead at the time. Only a few Finns could see the living Elvis. Even more would have liked to face him. Finns from Danny to Pate Mustajärvi, from Frederik to Paleface, from Mikko Alatalo to Antti Rinte, from Erja Lyytinen to Aira Samulin and more than 100 other people from different parts of society tell their own Elvis stories. Their voices are also heard in the country silent that have been listened to and watched from generation to generation legend performances, perhaps sung along with them.
