DIRECTOR(S): Asif Kapadia

STARRING: Diego Armando Maradona, Diego Maradona Jr., Claudia Villafañe

GENRE: Documentary Film

SYNOPSIS: The entire life of Diego Maradona may be concisely summarized by the seven dramatic years he spent in Naples. After Asif Kapadia’s riveting Senna and mournful Amy, the master of the documentary compilation opted for a portrait of the controversial Argentinian athlete. Although the football gods blessed him with unparalleled talent, off the field they made him pay dearly.
