Sports in films! Faster, higher, stronger: filming sports is the new cycle presented from September 12 to December 20 by the Cinémathèque du documentaire at Centre Pompidou in partnership with the National Film Board of Canada.
The programme includes works by directors who experiment with new cinematographic forms by filming sports.
Michel Brault (Les Raquetteurs), Gilles Groulx (Un jeu si simple), Jean-Claude Labrecque, among others, invented together an authorial type of filming, both free and humorous. Minor subjects but major forms, their concise, fluid films are gathered into five original programmes: National sport Canada, Match time, Free figures, Against the clock and Ring parade.
