Unfiction | Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait 
Friday, February 27, 8 PM

Over the course of a single match (Villareal vs. Real Madrid, April 2005), 17 film and video cameras captured every move — every step, every squint, every strike — of legendary footballer Zinedine Zidane. Directors Philippe Parreno and Douglas Gordon have used their documentation to create a modern portrait that is equal parts performance, athletic event and intensely personal reverie.

Via a surround mix of audio, viewers in EMPAC's Theater will be immersed in this poignant examination of the human condition of the athlete and of athlete as performer.

Set to a soundtrack by Scottish post-rock phenoms Mogwai, the filmmakers present a spectacular meditation on the joys of both physical virtuosity and spectatorship.

For an additional treat, arrive early and grab a snack. For an hour before the screening, The Epicurean, will provide food and beverages for purchase in EMPAC's Evelyn's Cafe on both February 27 + March 6.

Is listening to a recording of a bottle still listening to a bottle? What about a glacier? New works for multichannel sound diffusion by composers Doug Henderson (Berlin), Seth Cluett (Paris), and Natasha Barrett (Oslo) explore questions of where and how to locate what is "real" or "true" in the experience of audio works that begin with documentary, field recording.
