Senna: Best Documentary at the BAFTAS!
Back in June 2011, I was so impressed with Asif Kapadia’s documentary about Ayrton Senna that I felt compelled to write a whole article about it in the shape of one of my posts! You can read it here. Then, you will understand why I was so delighted that the film was acknowledged yesterday at the Baftas, deservedly winning for best documentary and best editing.
Sadly, it has been overlooked at the Oscars, which is a shame but nevertheless, it received two prestigious awards. If you haven’t seen it, run to your videoshop, as quickly as you can, and hire it. You don’t need to enjoy Formula One or to have liked Ayrton Senna; all you need is to love a great film and Kapadia’s Senna belongs undoubtedly in that category.
