The hilarious and politically incisive new film from Romanian New Wave master Porumboiu finds him spending time with Laurențiu Ginghină, a bureaucrat whose budding career on the pitch was cut short in 1987 by a slide tackle that fractured his fibula. Ginghină now dreams of radically revising the beautiful game’s rules in order to cut down on injuries and, in his mind at least, revolutionize the world’s most popular sport. Porumboiu’s portrait of this goofy and self-assured would-be revolutionary is a follow-up to The Second Game (which opened the inaugural edition of Art of the Real in 2014) and a clever parable for the obstacles faced by utopian thought today. North American Premiere
