Substitute, followed by a Q&A with Vikash Dhorasoo & Fred Poulet, on 16 February at 8.30pm.

16/02/2012 from 20:30 to 22:30



France | 2006 | col | 70 mins | dir.s. Fred Poulet and Vikash Dhorasoo | in French with English subtitles
6 April, 2006. Fred Poulet, singer, author and video filmmaker asks his friend, Vikash Dhorasoo, to film his everyday life until 9 July, day of the World Cup final in Berlin. Dhorasoo has been selected to be one of the 23 players of the French team during the qualifying matches in Germany, and ends up playing for a mere 16 minutes. Doomed to watch from the sidelines, this uncommonly gifted football player makes the most of his status as a substitute by filming thrilling scenes with his two super 8 cameras. A sincere portrait of a wounded man, lost in the greatest sport event in the world.
