Parent & Baby Screening: Diego Maradona (12A)

Diego Maradona

This new documentary from Oscar and BAFTA-winner director Asif Kapadia captures the unbelievable life of one of football’s most legendary players.

Charting Maradona's beginnings from the slums of Villa Fiorito in Buenos Aires, to lifting the World Cup for Argentina in 1986, this is a gripping account of a life full of sport, politics, drugs, the mafia, fame, football and – perhaps, above all – excess.

As with his previous features Senna (2011) and Amy (2015), Kapadia draws on contemporary footage and audio from throughout Maradona’s career; we see and hear afresh some of the Argentine's most astonishing moments, including the ‘Hand of God’ goal against England, the triumph of leading underdogs Napoli to the Serie A title, to the problems of addiction, infidelity and friendships with the mafia. 

Never cautious, never careful and absolutely never dull, this documentary lays bare one of the most extraordinary sporting figures of our time.
