Manchester International Festival: Mogwai
One of the most beguiling portrayals of an individual in recent cinematic history, Zidane, A 21st Century Portrait is a football film like no other. Using 17 cameras, the film tracks the legendary French midfielder Zinédine Zidane throughout a 2005 Spanish league match at Madrid’s imposing Bernabéu Stadium — on and off the ball, in the thick of the action and on its periphery. The result, from directors Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno, is a dramatic, hypnotic and deeply beautiful depiction of one of the world’s finest footballers performing on one of the sport’s grandest stages.
The film’s soundtrack was composed by Mogwai — and for the first time, the band will be performing it live alongside the movie. The Glasgow quintet have built a deserved reputation for the fearsome intensity of their live shows, and tonight’s show at the atmospheric Albert Hall offers a unique chance to see them in action.
Glasgow's critically acclaimed post-rock band, lead by Stuart Braithwaite. Loved by the late John Peel, Mogwai put an emphasis on epic big scale music with an orchestral feel. Rich and luscious in its atmosphere and texture, here's a group that really will take you on a trip to somewhere else. Who needs vocals when instrumentals can be this powerful?
