Filmed over the course of one football match played in 2005, this documentary-style film presents a real-time portrait of French football star Zinedine Zidane.

Presented across two channels, Zidane is compiled out of footage captured on seventeen synchronized cameras across the stadium, spliced with the televised feed, and contrasted against raw footage from the match.

Voyeuristic in nature, the work closely and intensely follows Zidane, highlighting his movements, mannerisms and mood throughout the 92-minute game. A portrait for a new generation. Zidane opens up questions around the mediated nature of the celebrity image in the digital age.
