He was the author of a documentary project — a film about the goalie art, about football and life in general. The realization of the project brought together the latest decades’ best goalkeepers of the world the and Malafeev’ friends: Gianluigi Buffon, Jens Lehmann, Edwin Van Der Sar, Iker Casillas, Alexander Shovkovskiy, Rinat Das, Igor Akinfeev and Mikhail Biryukov.
The film’s main aim is to tell about goalie art through the example of the past and present great goalies sporting careers, about what the success is and how to achieve victory.
Here is what Vyacheslav Malafeev tells about the film: “The whole life in gloves" is another extremely important social football project for me. I have a few more interesting and ambitious ideas that are sure to be embodied in the future; right now I think I should do things that are the most important for me. After a book about goalie art that was published some time ago, a film that will make football more popular in Russia was created. I’m sure that many boys and everyone who is interested in football will learn a lot from this movie."
