Synopsis

In 1984, the world’s most expensive football player, Argentine sensation Diego Maradona, moved from Barcelona to play for Napoli, a team in the poorest area of Italy. Looking for a fresh start to his career, Maradona’s inherent footballing skill turned the team around and helped them win the first trophies in their history. However, his time in Italy also found him involved with organised crime, drugs and numerous scandals, affecting his life both on and off the field. This documentary, from esteemed filmmaker Asif Kapadia, explores the price of fame and the way sport can define a culture and a city. Covering the entirety of Maradona’s six year stay in Naples with crisp, never-before-seen archive footage, 'Diego Maradona' gives us an intimate insight into one of football’s most famous icons.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
