Grand Prix winner of Critics’ Week at Cannes, Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt’s singular Diamantino is at once a queer fairy tale, a sci-fi thriller, and an outrageous political satire of modern Europe.
Portuguese soccer star Diamantino ends his career in disgrace after being surreally manipulated for nefarious political gain. Searching for a new purpose, the international icon sets out on a delirious odyssey in which he navigates neo-fascism, the refugee crisis, and genetic modification. A genre-melding debut, Diamantino is a deeply bizarre and transgressive cinematic experience.
