Diego Maradona (2019)
The third film from the Academy Award and BAFTA-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 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. In a city where the devil would have needed bodyguards, Maradona became bigger than God himself. This is the wild and unforgettable story of God-given talent, glory, despair and betrayal, of corruption and ultimately redemption.
