Diego Maradona waves to raucous Napoli fans before heading into a media scrum and press conference in the first clip from the feature documentary about the soccer superstar.
“Diego Maradona” is the third film from the team behind the award-winning “Senna” and “Amy,” with Asif Kapadia directing and James Gay-Rees and Paul Martin producing.
They put the film together from 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from the Argentine player’s personal archive. It tells the story of Maradona – regarded as one of the best players of all time – during his time at Italian club Napoli in the 1980s, tracing his on and off the pitch exploits in Italy.
Maradona will be premiering in Cannes, coming few weeks later to Valletta Film Festival.
