The second box of the series "The Jorgen Leth Collection" contains Leth´s sports films, primarily emphassing the cycle films where "Stars and Water Carriers" and "Sunday in Hell" are considered new genre classics. The director was tired of clichéd sports journalism and found "the inner psychological drama of the battles waged between great cyclist" more absorbing. "Stars and Water Carriers" portrays the Giro d´Italia in 1973 where Ole Ritter´s time trial is the cinematic and emotional climax. In "A Sunday in Hell", the renowned one-day race from Paris to Roubaix was recorded by 27 cameras strategically situated along the route, thus entrusting to many cinematographers the task of successfully capturing the dramatic event on film. Under the given rules of the game, the essence of both films is an artistic challenge. Also true of "The impossible Hour" portraying Ole Ritter´s attemp to retake the Hour Record.
"Pelota" is another expression of Leth´s fascination with unique people who perform with grandeur, in this case illustrated through a minor sport played exclusively in the Basque country.
Finally,, the set contains two early experimental films, "Motion picture" revolves around tennis player Torben Ulrich and investigates the phenomenon of movement within an absolute image area. "Chinese Ping Pong" describes this fast-paced games, working artistically with framing to accentuate the speed and beauty of the game.
