The new movie documentary on Ayrton Senna has been short listed for a prestigious award at the influential Sundance Film Festival.
Senna, which chronicles the Brazilian's career in F1, has already earned rave reviews following its cinematic release in Japan and Brazil. The bio-pic was chosen along with 11 other movies from some 800 submissions for the World Cinema Documentary Section, and will have its North American premiere at the event which takes place next January. It is due to be released in Europe in the middle of next year.
The Sundance Film Festival has earned its laurels for introducing global audiences to ground-breaking films over many years, including Sex, Lies and Videotape, An Inconvenient Truth and Napoleon Dynamite.
