DIEGO MARADONA

Edited by Chris King, DIEGO MARADONA will be in cinemas from the 14th June.

On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee. For seven years all hell broke loose. The world’s most celebrated football icon and the most passionate but dangerous city in Europe were a perfect match for each other. On the pitch, Diego Maradona was a genius. Off the pitch, he was treated like a God. The charismatic Argentine loved a fight against the odds and led Napoli to their first-ever title. It was the stuff of dreams. But there was a price… Diego could do as he pleased while performing miracles on the pitch but, as time passed, darker days closed in.

Directed by Asif Kapadia, produced by James Gay-Rees and edited by Chris King, the award-winning team behind AMY and SENNA, DIEGO MARADONA is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage.
