We laten het WK op Fontanel redelijk aan ons voorbij gaan (minus het ’88 Fontanel logo links onderin -als je maar vaak genoeg refresht), maar deze video laat heerlijk zien wat er gebeurt als film en het grootste toernooi van de wereld samenkomen.

“Refait” is a remake of the football WorldCup match between France and Germany (Seville, Spain, 1982). Shot by Pied La Biche in Villeurbanne (France), every aspect of the fifteen last minutes of the match was carefully reconstructed : players, positions, gestures, intensity, drama etc. It consists in shifting the traditional game area into the urban environment. Each sequence takes place in one or several locations and then the city temporarily becomes the lab for unsual experiments.
The soundtrack is made up of the original commentaries mixed with interviews of the audience recorded during the shooting.

Jeff Hamada verwoordt het mooi: “The sheer pointlessness of it all is hilarious.” (via)
