Film description

On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee. For seven years 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. 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. 

Constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s personal archive, Diego Maradona is the third film from Oscar-winning director of Senna and Amy Asif Kapadia – undoubtedly one of the greatest documentary makers working today.
