The Swiss premiere of a short film and a legendary World Cup match frame the second edition of our new "Cinema" live talks. Guests of ZFF Artistic Director Christian Jungen at the FIFA Museum live talk will include the film’s director and main star plus the refereeing legend who inspired the film.
Our new “Cinema” live talks in cooperation with Zurich Film Festival continues. For the second edition we present the Swiss premiere of the award-winning short film “1982 Italy-Brazil” at the FIFA Museum on 26 October 2022.
This will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by ZFF Artistic Director Christian Jungen with three prominent guests: author, director and producer Alessandro Della Villa, lead actor Cristiano Burgio and the man on whose experiences the film is largely based on: celebrated Israeli former referee Abraham Klein.
Come on down to the FIFA Museum to hear the moderator and his guests discuss how the film came about and swap stories of the actual shoot itself. See Klein meet the actor who plays him in the film and find out how the ex-referee feels about seeing himself portrayed on the big screen. Naturally, the discussion will also explore Klein's personal memories of the 1982 FIFA World Cup™ and how they influenced the film.
The talk will be held in English.
