    Documentary

    THIS MEANS MORE (2019) juxtaposes statements by football supporters with the technical tools utilised to represent virtual crowds. The latter are usually used to create an image of an ideal crowd in adverts, or to manage crowd flows in space by anticipating the movements of the bodies. As a counterpoint to these virtual images, supporters of Liverpool FC recount an experience marked by a tragic event: the Hillsborough stadium disaster in 1989, which changed the nature of the game of football.
