In his new film, Theo Anthony (director of Rat Film) transforms the tennis court into a laboratory for studying the boundaries of observation and documentation and exploring our perception of reality. From the birth of cinema to the rise of the Hawk-Eye instant replay system in professional tennis, the filmmaker looks at how technology changes the way we see the world.
