In January, 1995, Eric Cantona, after enduring a torrid time on the pitch in an English Premier League game, takes exception to the taunts of a xenophobic fan. After being sent off, Cantona launches himself at the fan, executing the most famous kung-fu kick in football lore. The Cantona event is read through Gilles Deleuze’s work on the cinema.
