Director: Asif Kapadia
In July 1984, Argentine football superstar Diego Maradona arrived in Naples to play for the ailing football giant SSC Napoli. The world’s most celebrated football genius and one of the most dysfunctional cities in Europe were a perfect match for each other, and for seven years all hell broke loose. Maradona became an almost god-like figure, worshipped by the Italians for elevating the Napoli team through the football ranks. Constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s personal archive, Asif Kapadia’s latest documentary deftly explores the complicated dynamic between talent and fame, artistry and performance, Diego the man and Maradona the icon.
