Bon voyage

Karine Birge & 40' — In progress

She was 102 years old. It was the end of summer 2018. My grandmother made the choice to leave France to come and die in Belgium. The choice of a “sweet and easy” death – euthanasia in Greek. Today, I revisit our last exchanges, I convene a small theater of dolls and objects, I gather my relatives and friends. Doctor Frankenstein and Chantal Goya join us. It is a round around my grandmother who has left serenely. It is a film that speaks to us of what a shared and dignified death can be. She was 102 years old. It was the end of summer 2018. My grandmother made the choice to leave France to come and die in Belgium. The choice of a “sweet and easy” death – euthanasia in Greek.
