Senna - film trailer
SENNA is a new documentary on Brazilian racing driver Ayrton Senna who won the F1 world championship three times before his untimely death at age 34 in 1994. The film charts his achievements on the track and off, his quest for perfection, and the mythical status he has since attained especially in Brazil.
The film, directed by Asif Kapadia, won the World Cinema Documentary Audience Award at the Sundance Festival in January this year. Eschewing many standard documentary techniques in favour of a more cinematic approach it makes full use of astounding footage, much of which is drawn from F1 archives and which is previously unseen.
UK release: 3 June 2011
