This documentary feature tells the story of iconic footballer Pelé, his quest for perfection and the mythical status he attained.

As well as unprecedented interview access to Pelé, the film includes astounding archive footage and interviews with legendary former team-mates including Zagallo, Jairzinho and Rivellino.

The story looks back at the extraordinary 12-year period in which Pelé, the only man to win three World Cup titles, went from young superstar in 1958 to national hero in 1970; a radical yet turbulent era in Brazil’s history.

PELÉ is directed by David Tryhorn and Ben Nicholas, produced by Pitch Productions and executive produced by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald.

PELE premieres February 23rd at 7:00 PM on Netflix Australia
