Senna – Going Beyond Your Limits
by Iain Alexander
The epic feature length documentary on prolific formula one racer Senna is hitting theaters this summer revealing the true story behind the legend.
Senna entered the hall of fame with his death defying career when he began to compete in F1 from 1984. For the fans, this documentary answers all those unsolved questions, and brings back the memories, the glories and the failures of one of the most inspiring racing figures.
Senna met an untimely death a decade later doing what he loved, but his philosophy and personal strength live till this day. The documentary, which won this year’s Sundance Film Festival audience award has been well received by critics and fans.
Compiled of archive footage, and a powerful soundtrack, director Asif Kapadia conveys an emotional journey in the spotlight, and for F1 fans who haven’t heard of Senna, this gives us a behind the scenes look at racing, and how one man decided to become a superstar.
