58min · Documentary, Biography, Music · 9 March 2013
Vincent Paterson is the one who told Michael Jackson to grab his crotch and who was called Satan by the Pope after directing the Blond Ambition Tour. He is an artist unknown to most people, but whose moves have been imitated in front of millions of mirrors. An educated and humble man who is the somewhat unexpected link between Madonna and Lars von Trier. A poor boy from Brookhaven, PA, who became a star choreographer in Hollywood. Director Kersti Grunditz - I met Vincent in 2001, read his bio and realized I had seen all his work, but never heard of him. After a good deal of persuasion he let me into his life and allowed me to make this intimate documentary.
