This film is a football match between two Bucharest soccer teams, Steaua and Dinamo, which took place on the 3rd of December, 1988. My father was the referee. We re-watched the match together, some 25 years later. I watched the film at home, in Vaslui, on a basic DVD player, which didn’t have a pause button. We started to watch the match and talk about it, but, after we’d been recording for a while, the DVD froze. We then had to watch it again and we started the discussion from scratch. This time I realized after 20 minutes that my tape recorder wasn’t working. I met my father again the next day to start the recording over and again we had problems, this time after the 60th minute, so we had to start watching the film for the fourth time, from the beginning, in order to finish the viewing and the recording of the discussion.
