Senna documents the racing life of Ayrton Senna, a Formula 1 three-time world champion who died while racing at age 34. The film tells the story of the Brazilian’s rise in the high-adrenaline sport from his arrival in Europe in the late 1970s until his death in 1994. The grainy archive video in the movie underscores the intensity and danger of Senna’s passion. As he himself says, “Pure driving, real racing. That makes me happy.” At Magic Lantern (JO) PG-13
