Advance Notice. Zidane at the Hammer.

Although he's officially retired and not in this year's World Cup, his shocking headbutt four years ago is one of those amazing, crazy moments recorded forever in soccer history.

Next Tuesday, if you haven't yet gotten your fill of football, the Hammer Museum in Westwood will be showing an art film shot from the footballer's perspective, shot one year before the fateful game between France and Italy.

The 2006 game was the first time I had heard of the Marseilles-native Zinedine Zidane, but for his French fans Zidane is a long-time household name. For those of us who haven't known Zidane since he was with Real Madrid, a look into what a soccer match looks like from the perspective of a major footballer could be very interesting, especially as the World Cup comes to a close July 11.

The documentary is being shown July 6 at 7:00 p.m. for free at the Hammer Museum. The Hammer is located at 10899 Wilshire Blvd.
