Plot & Details

Senna's remarkable story, charting his physical and spiritual achievements on the track and off, his quest for perfection and the mythical status he has since attained, is the subject of 'Senna,' a documentary feature that spans the racing legend's years as an F1 driver. Far more than a film for F1 fans, 'Senna' unfolds a remarkable story in a remarkable manner, eschewing many standard documentary techniques in favor of a more cinematic approach that makes full use of astounding footage, much of which is drawn from F1 archives and previously unseen.
