Cinema TV Concert by Red + Tessier + Marinescu

French Film Festival UK 2010 Special Event proposed by the Institut Français d’Ecosse

“No other film, no other theatre play in the world could convey as many emotions and contradictory feelings, as the semi final [which France lost] in Seville.” Michel Platini

Spain, 8 July 1982. FIFA World Cup. Sanchez Pizjuán stadium in Seville is packed. Seventy thousand people are gathered for the semi final where France faces Germany (at that time Federal Republic of Germany). Red, Tessier and Marinescu Trio finds again about this legendary sports meeting his favourite playground, the stage, to give an intense and personal interpretation. Crossing pop rock and football, image, sound and music, this Cinema TV Concert leads the audience into a unique, inventive and surprising vision of this game which has marked a whole generation.
