ZZ top -- the return of Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait


The loaded title of Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno's Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait promises a rendering of the iconic and volcanic footballer and of the century in which we reside. This Friday, Gordon and Parreno's one-of-a-kind film begins a return engagement at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. In honor of the film, and in conjunction with our recent "Video Mutants" cover package, here is a link to my extensive interview with Gordon about the film from last year, and a trailer that gives you a mere taste of Zidane's sensurround properties when experienced in a movie theater.
