Film – Diego Maradona

When Diego Maradona arrived in Naples in 1984, for a world-record fee, the cities cherished football team was transformed from lowly underachievers to Italian and European Champions. Venerated as a God, Maradona was subsumed into a city riddled with corruption, where even the Devil needed bodyguards.

The third film from Asif Kapadia, the Oscar-winning director of Amy, is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage. Kapadia skilfully unfurls an incredible story of sporting success, the creation of a myth and a cities obsessive devotion to a breathtaking talent that made him the greatest footballer of his generation.

But there was a price… Diego Maradona is a unique insight into a football genius indomitable sprit and his very human weaknesses.
