FRA/PRT/BRA | 2018 | dir. Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt, with Carloto Cotta, Cleo Tavares

Set in present-day Portugal, Diamantino follows the journey of a hilariously naïve football star, from blissful prowess to career-busting disillusionment. Searching for a new purpose, the international icon, loosely based on one of today’s most famous football players, sets on a delirious odyssey where he confronts neo-fascism, the refugee crisis, genetic modification, and the hunt for the source of genius. Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt’s Diamantino won the Grand Prize at Cannes Film Festival’s Critics’ Week last year.
