Showtimes and location

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. 


Please note, our Captioned Screening on Mon. 17th June will only include subtitles for dialogue spoken, and not any descriptive subtitling of other sounds/music in the film.
