Diego Maradona

DIEGO MARADONA zooms in on the eponymous footballer from Argentina – by popular opinion perhaps the greatest footballer of all time. Constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage, the feature-length doco is by the makers of Amy (2015) – and paints a vivid portrait of Diego Maradona both on and off the pitch. Playing for S.C.C. Napoli, Maradona led the ailing club to a victory in 1984 – and became near godlike in the city. But all wasn’t coming up roses: DIEGO MARADONA shows the betrayal and corruption behind the power and glory, and a man who was much deeper and darker than just a football star.
