Diego Maradona 12A
From the archive
This film was last shown on 11 July 2019
Having never won a major tournament, SSC Napoli had always underachieved. But when Diego Maradona arrived in 1984, all hell broke loose.
In a city where the devil would have needed bodyguards, Maradona became bigger than God himself. This is the wild and unforgettable story of an extraordinary talent, of glory, despair, betrayal, corruption and, ultimately, redemption.
The third film from the Academy Award and BAFTA-winning team behind Senna and Amy is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s personal archive.
