Visions of Eight
A collective documentary created as a tribute to the Olympic Games in Munich in 1972. The games are seen through the eyes of eight great directors who tried to make not only a journalistic reportage of the sporting event, but also to emphasize their personal point of view in order to show the pain and disappointment that comes with euphoria.
Milos Forman’s episode is the longest section, and as the sixth section stands out as one of the most outstanding moments of the film. The episode presents the decathlon as the pinnacle of the Olympic Games.
Runtime: 104 min. / part The Decathlon 16 min.
