Back to All Events



When Diamantino, the world's greatest football star loses his magic touch and ends his career in catastrophic disgrace, he embarks on a search for a greater purpose. His existential crisis sends him on a delirious voyage that spans nationalism, the cult of modern fame, genetic modification and a hunt for the secret of genius. Visually wild and imaginative, Diamantino won the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival's Critics' Week.

As wildly entertaining as any blockbuster, schlocky as any B-movie and as politically enraged as your Twitter feed, Diamantino is a start-to-finish joy
