Welcome to the official Finnish premier of Keep it REEL intertwined with live dance and musical performances with special guests from the film.
Keep it REEL is a film about the history of Irish dance culture in Finland from the point of view of Ilkka Kuosminen and Essi Lahtinen-Carranza, two award winning Irish dancers who have made significant contributions to it. The Irish dance scene in Finland was born a few years after Riverdance premiered at the 1994 Eurovision song contest. The rest is history as they say. Narrated by Eamonn Keenan, this is the colourful story of its development explored through the personal experiences of Ilkka and Essi.
