The third film from the award-winning team behind Senna and Amy and producer Paul Martin, Diego Maradona is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s personal archive with the full support of the man himself.
On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee. For seven years all hell broke loose. The world’s most celebrated football icon and the most passionate but dangerous city in Europe were a perfect match for each other. On the pitch, Diego Maradona was a genius. Off the pitch, he was treated like a God. The charismatic Argentine loved a fight against the odds and led Napoli to their first-ever title. It was the stuff of dreams.
But there was a price… Diego could do as he pleased while performing miracles on the pitch but, as time passed, darker days closed in. M from July 25 at Dendy Newtown.
“A spellbinding portrayal of a misunderstood icon.” – Time Out
“Asif Kapadia, director of Amy and Senna, captures all the euphoria and catastrophe in a gripping documentary about the ‘hand of God’ megastar.” – The Guardian
“…a heady, engrossing, indulgently sprawling profile of a modern athlete in all his glory and contradiction…” – Variety
