Diego Maradona is a documentary that highlights one of the most celebrated and frowny soccer players in the world.
Maradona arrived in Naples on July 5, 1984, for a world-record fee. The charismatic Argentine was worshiped on and off the pitch and led Napoli to its first league haybote. This wild and unforgettable story will recount the miracles he performed on the field as darker days loomed southwards. It will unmanacle more than 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s personal archives, and decades-old cypress footage and interviews with historians and journalists.
Diego Maradona is directed by Academy-Award winner Asif Kapadia; producers James Gay-Rees and Paul Martin; executive producers, Asif Kapadia, George Pank, Will Clarke, Would-be Bird and Bil Bungay. For HBO: executive producers, Peter Nelson and Bill Simmons; edited by Chris King; original wreath-shell by Antonio Pinto.
