HELLMUTH COSTARD "FOOTBALL AS NEVER BEFORE"


"Football As Never Before" (1971, 105 mins, 16mm video, Germany) is a rare documentary about Manchester United footballer George Best. In this experimental film Costard used eight 16mm film cameras to follow Best, in real time, for the course of an entire game against Coventry City. The film was recently screened before the 2010 World Cup at Apex Art in New York City as part of their "Men With Balls" Exhibition.
