Balancing Act

Balancing Act

A Feature film by Perrine Michel

Produced by La Chambre aux Fresques

Release in France : 14/10/2020


    You don't come here to heal, but to live out your final days as fully as possible. This is a palliative care facility. On a daily basis, caregivers work together and listen to each other, to be as close as possible to the patients.
    In parallel to the scenes showing a medical approach full of humanism, the filmmaker's voice is heard. It too accompanies her mother through her illness.
    Four dancers highlight the chronicle of this accompaniment.
