Moving Gracefully Toward the Exit (2013)

Winner of the Best European Independent Documentary Award 2013

American Choreographer Patrice Regnier and French Scientist Michel Gouilloud agreed to film the last years of Mr. Gouilloud’s life, after he was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease. After Mr. Gouilloud passed away in 1997, Ms. Regnier put the footage away in a box, unable to touch the some 60 hours of film. In 2003, a young woman named Chloe, renting the home where the footage was shot, found the tapes. Chloe wrote to Patrice, asking her to share this story. ‘Moving Gracefully Towards the Exit’ is the result.
