Soccer. A documentary on the ASSE training center broadcast this Thursday

This Thursday evening, on the France 3 Rhône-Alpes Auvergne channel, an unpublished documentary “Le Centre” will be broadcast at 11 p.m. It recounts the daily life of young interns at the AS Saint-Etienne Training Center over a year. Surrounded by coaches, educators and other club employees, these teenagers from diverse sociological and geographical backgrounds, often far from their families, received a sports and school education as well as the rules of community life.

This 52-minute film, directed by Alexandre Donot and Raphaël Rivière, sets out to show human relations, to decelerate the paradoxes of this place whose concern for efficiency and profitability contradicts its educational mission, as well as with the social and working-class identity of the city it represents.

“The Center” by Alexandre Donot and Raphaël Rivière to see this Thursday, November 24, 2022 at 11 p.m.
