Maradona by Kusturica is a documentary on the life of Argentine footballer Diego Maradona, directed by the award-winning Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica. The documentary premiered at the Cannes Film Festival 2008.

Kusturica stated the following regarding the film:

  • It is the first film that will treat all the aspects of the life of Maradona.
  • The film will be very complex to make, because I want to show the true personality of Maradona. Football is a science of great mathematical precision!
  • The film ends when the former football player being in good health, and has no more addiction to drugs.
  • The film will show "the three Maradonas" I've discovered during the shooting: the football teacher, the politically incorrect citizen against the unilateral politics of the USA and the family man. These three Diegos will be in the end of the film I will shoot in the Aztec Stadium in Mexico, where Diego scored one of his most famous goals, during the World Cup 1986 against the English team.
