Director Asif Kapadia has graciously arranged to make time to attend this special San Francisco screening to discuss the film for a truly one-of-a-kind evening with you – all interested in the film and it’s legendary subject are welcome to attend.
Over 15,000 hours of archive footage were considered by Kapadia for a work of film that critics, F1 fans, non-race fans and especially the Senna family love. The film has been moving moviegoers around the world since it opened last October, and hit the ground running in the United States earlier this year taking the 2011 World Cinema Documentary Audience Award at Sundance.
This event is happening with the support of friends and the greater car club/racing community, and members of the Brazilian community are particularly encouraged to attend. This showing will not be advertised, so please spread the word around your favorite forums and boards about this special night. Movie posters will be available at the screening, while supplies last.
We cannot thank everyone’s support enough for making this very special evening possible for all fans of racing and the film’s hero, Ayrton Senna.
