Some background: I met Michel in 1995 and spent a couple of years getting to know him and learning with him, in New York and Tel Aviv, his home bases at the time. We made the documentary in 1997. He was a fascinating, remarkable man, uniquely focussed and obsessed. Michel stood out for me because his singular ability was to encourage the gifts in others and in effect make himself redundant. His conflict was with what he saw as a teaching industry that relied on students continually needing to be taught. He wasn't necessarily correct, but it was a belief that drove him on.

I was lucky to spend such a length of time with this remarkable man.
