Sunday in Hell
Jørgen Leth, 1976

Football as Never Before

Hellmuth Costard, 1971
Wed, Feb 17, 2010 7 PM

Follow the action from every angle with these multicamera exposés of the Parais-Roubaix cycling race of 1976 and Manchester United–hero George Best.

Legendary cycling action, captured from every angle. With Sunday in Hell, Leth (featured in Lars von Trier’s Five Obstructions) uses 20 cameras to take you inside the grueling 1976 Paris-Roubaix cycling race as it winds through northern France. (110 mins., video)

As the Northern Irish would say, “Maradona good, Pelé better, George Best.” Often cited as a precursor to the film Zidane, Football as Never Before employs eight cameras to follow Best, the Manchester United great and 1968 European Footballer of the year, over the course of an entire match (105 mins., video)

Football as Never Before begins at 9:15 PM.
