video, 54 min., 2006
Christopher (13) wants to become a football player like Zidane. Fady (22) was on his way to becoming one. Monsieur Kanes (50) helps every kid who wants to get out of the district. Only Yazid made it. Yazid is Zidane.
Yazid’s Brüder (Yazid’s brothers) tells three stories about using football as a way out, to escape the fate of the forsaken immigrant generation. A documentary about football in La Castellane, one of the most infamous urban districts of Marseille and home to the world’s best football player, Zinédine Zidane, filmed during the EURO 04.
