The most exciting driver to ever race Formula One, the handsome, charismatic Ayrton Senna became a Brazilian national hero and an icon to racing fans worldwide. But you don't need to know the first thing about racing to be thrilled and moved by Asif Kapadia's high-octane documentary, composed entirely from archival footage. It's an edge-of your-seat documentary that explores the backroom politics, bitter rivalries and the glamour of a sport that leaves no room for error. At the same time, it's a character study of a near-mythic genius who was a man of uncompromising humanity and grace.
Told in a remarkable manner, SENNA uses astounding archival footage combined with original voiceover interviews to create a thrill-ride worthy of its daring subject. Producers Distribution Agency (PDA) will release SENNA on August 12th at The Landmark in LA and the Sunshine in NY.
