Synopsis

“A bit of cheating and a lot of genius.”


From the Academy Award and BAFTA-winning director of SENNA and AMY, Asif Kapadia’s DIEGO MARADONA is another enlightening and entertaining look at the life and times of a flawed genius. It is a story of God-given talent, glory, despair and betrayal, of corruption and ultimately redemption.


In July 1984, Argentinian soccer superstar Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee. In the next seven years all hell broke loose. The world’s most celebrated football icon and a city in which the devil himself would have needed bodyguards were a perfect match for each other. On the pitch, he was a miracle-working genius. Off the pitch, he was treated like a God.  It was the stuff of dreams, but, as time passed, darker days closed in...


Drawn from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage, much not previously seen, from his personal archive, DIEGO MARADONA captures the giddy highs and tragic lows of a roller-coaster life
