Pelé

Feature Documentaries

Pelé tells the story of the greatest footballer to have ever played the beautiful game. Tracing the Brazilian’s unique journey, from 16 year-old prodigy to becoming the only player to ever win three World Cups, Pelé is more than just a documentary portrait of sporting greatness. It’s also the story of Brazil in the 1960s, as the country went from basking in Pelé’s global fame to experiencing a period of political turmoil and dictatorship.
