Wildcard Distribution, a film distributor based in Dublin, are working on the cinema release of DIEGO MARADONA, a feature film documentary about the life and career of the legendary football player, Diego Maradona, which will be hitting Irish cinemas next Friday, June 14th.
The film focuses on the much-loved yet controversial footballer during his time at SSC Napoli, where he arrived in 1984 for a world-record fee. The world’s most celebrated football icon and the most passionate but dangerous city in Europe were a perfect match for each other. Maradona was blessed on the field but cursed off it, as the charismatic Argentine quickly led Naples to their first-ever title. DIEGO MARADONA is the wild and unforgettable story of raw talent, glory, despair and betrayal, of corruption and ultimately redemption.
DIEGO MARADONA is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage and is directed by Academy Award winning director of the international box office hits AMY and SENNA, Asif Kapadia.
DIEGO MARADONA will be rolling out in cinemas across Ireland on Friday, June 14th.
