"The Sex Pistol of footballers," is how renowned director Emir Kusturica (Time of the Gypsies; Underground; Black Cat White Cat) describes Diego Maradona: sporting hero, people’s champion, fallen idol and inspiration to millions. Enjoying unprecedented access to the man himself, as well as to extensive archives, Kusturica takes the audience on an intimate whirlwind tour of places and people closest to this god of football. From Argentina to Naples, from Cuba to Barcelona; from family and childhood friends to fellow players and world leaders (Fidel Castro), Maradona by Kusturica traces the great man’s incredible story, from the humblest of beginnings to world-domination; from spectacular, tragic fall to glorious rebirth.

Punk, political and exuberant , featuring an original score from Manu Chao, Maradona by Kusturica is both a unique documentation of a growing friendship between the director and his subject and a passionate exultation of a true legend of our times.

    This looks so good. I am going to really try to be there if I finish work early enough. Probably too late for me to go out after though. Hopefully see you tomorrow!
