Zidane: A Twenty-First Century Portrait
By Douglas Gordon & Philip Parreno

A startlingly original and audacious portrait of one of the greatest players in the history of soccer, Zin├ędine Zidane. Seventeen synchronized cameras were used, each focusing on Zidane in real time, from the first kick of the ball to the moment he was given a red card and ejected from the game. The match, between Real Madrid (Zidane's team) and Villarreal, was played on April 23, 2005 and was witnessed by eighty thousand screaming fans.

Zidane himself recounts, in voice-over, what he can and cannot remember from his matches. Magnificently edited and accompanied by a majestic score from Scottish rock heroes Mogwai, this is perhaps the best sports films ever made, but also one of the finest studies of man in the workplace, an ode to the loneliness of the athlete and the poise and resilience of the human body. (2006, 92 min, 35mm)
