John McEnroe: In The Realm of Perfection

FranceDocumentary1 Hour 35 Mins

Written and directed by Faraut, JOHN MCENROE: IN THE REALM OF PERFECTION revisits the rich 16-mm-shot footage of the left-handed tennis star John McEnroe, at the time the world’s top-ranked player, as he competes in the French Open at Paris’s Roland Garros Stadium in 1984. Faraut probes the archival film to unpack McEnroe’s attention to the sport, creating an immersive look at a driven athlete, a study on the sport of tennis and the human body, and how these all intersect with cinema itself.
