Spent a few days hanging out in Kyoto with a fun and fascinating storyteller, film director Asif Kapadia.

Asif has directed a number of films, most notably Senna, about Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna.

I knew little about Senna, but loved the film. The entire film is made from archival footage of Senna and much of it narrated by Senna himself.

The narrative arc of the documentary, with the start of his career, rivalry with Prost and – spoiler alert – ending with Senna’s death are remarkable.

Asif found much of the footage on YouTube and built a first draft of the film from that footage.

Much more on this video interview I did with Asif and see Senna trailer here.
