In the short film Vraiment doucement/Ever So Slightly, François Blouin re-imagines the dance work of the same title created by RUBBERBAND in 2018. Filmed in an empty Olympic Stadium, the film follows six characters in the throes of a sense of urgency, revolt, chaos, and a desire to flee.

The film Vraiment doucement/Ever So Slightly premiered on Télé-Québec in the program, Danse en trois temps, broadcast in March 2021.
