“Refait” is a remake of the football World Cup match between France and Germany (Seville, Spain, 1982). Shot by Pied La Biche in Villeurbanne (France), every aspect of the fifteen last minutes of the match was carefully reconstructed : players, positions, gestures, intensity, drama etc. It consists in shifting the traditional game area into the urban environment. Each sequence takes place in one or several locations and then the city temporarily becomes the lab for unsual experiments.
The soundtrack is made up of the original commentaries mixed with interviews of the audience recorded during the shooting.

The strange noise you’re hearing during today’s World Cup games (and for the rest of the tournament, presumably) is the sound of thousands of vuvuzelas. But what, pray tell, is a vuvuzela?
A vuvuzela is a long plastic horn popular with South African soccer fans, who blow them en masse during games. Played by producing a ‘raspberry’ sound with your lips, the vuvuzelas’ sound has been compared to an elephant’s trumpet, a dying goat and a car going over rumble strips.
The horns first came into fashion in the mid-1990s, but their origin is unclear.
