ZIDANE: A 21st Century Portrait Special Preview and Q&A

ZIDANE: A 21st Century Portrait Special Preview and Q&A

On Monday 25 September, a day after the London premiere, Curzon Mayfair hosts a preview and Q&A with Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno.

One of the most acclaimed films in the Cannes Film Festival, ZIDANE: A 21ST – CENTURY PORTRAIT is Douglas Gordon’s and Philippe Parreno’s sensational cinematic portrait of the world famous French football hero Zinédine Zidane.

French footballer Zinédine Zidane became world-famous following his performance in the 2006 World Cup – astounding fans with his skills and passion.

Turner Prize-winning artist and filmmaker Douglas Gordon teamed up with French artist Philipppe Parreno to create a work glorious in its simplicity. The film was made by training 17 cameras (under the supervision of acclaimed cinematographer Darius Khondji) on Zidane over the course of a single match between Real Madrid and Villareal. 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 not only the greatest football movie 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.
