Excerpt from the book "Annika Ström Live!":

I was in a show in Belgrade and at the dinner I sat next to one of the other artists.
This artist was so kind.
Next day at the breakfast table I announced to the other artists
“ I am going to make a new film. Now, here in Belgrade, I ve found the kindest artist in the world!”
Everybody rose up and congratulated me and joined in saying
“What a good one to pick! He is so kind!”
Four years have now passed and still no one else has claimed to be a kinder artist.
His name is Jukka Korkeila.
