DIEGO MARADONA

  • Direction: Asif Kapadia
  • Actors: Diego Maradona, Corrado Ferlaino

Acclaimed British filmmaker Asif Kapadia’s follow-up to his previous two award-winning documentaries (Senna, 2010; Amy, 2015) is another compelling non-fiction portrait, this time of soccer superstar Diego Maradona.

Incorporating never-seen-before footage sourced from the footballer’s personal archive, Kapadia primarily concentrates on the rise-and-fall career arc between 1984 and 1992, when Maradona was in the glare of international spotlight.

Leading an unfancied Naples club team to two national-league titles and the coveted UEFA Cup, Maradona’s fall from grace was hastened by his cocaine addiction, his dealings with the Neapolitan mafia and Italy’s 1990 World Cup defeat to Argentina under the captaincy of their former hero.
