In the Realm of Perfection
An essay study on the possibilities of combining sports and film. Using traditional French film theory and philosophy, the director analyzes the sports performances of American tennis legend John McEnroe captured on 16mm film. The film offers a contemplation on the relationship between duration (durée), the passage of time, and motion.
French filmmaker Julien Faraut (1978) worked as an administrator at the French Institute of Sport’s film archive. He combines sports, art, and cinematography in his film work.
