While we where working on the book 3 LETTERS we also recorded this short documentary about EGS. We hooked up with him in his studio, walked the streets of Helsinki and ended up in an old abandoned factory in Tallinn, Estonia. Get to know how it all started in Helsinki, how people started interrailing and building up a international network and of course how he got the name EGS.
