The documentary ‘Senna’ has won the 2011 World Cinema Documentary Audience Award at the Sundance Festival. ‘Senna’ took the Audience Award with 11 other films in competition, and tells the story of the late Formula 1 driver, Ayrton Senna, through archival footage of his life on and off the racetrack.
The final showing at Sundance was today, and many critics including The Los Angeles Times and Hollywood Reporter have been full of praise. In two previous releases in Japan and Brazil, both fans and newcomers to Senna and Formula 1 have found the film to be brilliant, a fitting tribute to the man so many admire on both sides of the pitwall.
Congratulations to Kapadia and the entire team on their work – news of the film’s official release will follow when available.
