Google the word “headbutt,” and French soccer player Zinedine Zidane’s name pops up at the top of the list. His violent 2006 World Cup turf war may be his most memorable moment, but filmmakers Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno have constructed a more favorable portrait of the legendary athlete. Their artful documentary, “Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait,” chronicles a 2005 Real Madrid and Villareal match, shot entirely from Mr. Zidane’s point of view. It’s subtitled in English and screens for free tonight at 8 at the Hirshhorn Museum (Independence and Seventh St. Southwest). Call: 202/633-1000 or log onto www.hirshhorn.si.edu.
