STORY DESCRIPTION:

"Blue Elf" is a portrait of an exceptional young man with Huntington's disease living in Helsinki, Finland. That is a rare inherited disease that causes e.g. dementia and leads to an untimely death. The documentary consists of audio- and video material collected during a five year period (2002-2007).

The 28-year old tells his tale of coping with Huntington's, having conquered alcoholism through most unusual means some years ago. The protagonist is immersed in a fantasy-world in which he is an elf among us mortals: a pure, joyful and insightful creature bent on discovering perpetual bliss through a certain "magical operation", which requires daily attention. He is drawn to
mysticism and has integrated it deeply in his life, spending most of his time within an apartement plastered with pictures of fairies and Joan of Arc.
