Singapore to screen Senna film
The acclaimed film on Ayrton Senna, widely regarded as the greatest Formula driver of all time, will make its debut here ahead of the SingTel Singapore Grand Prix at the Marina Bay circuit next month.
The documentary on the Brazilian, who died at the age of 34 after crashing out of the San Marino Grand Prix in 1994, will be screened at the Lido Cineplex on Sept 13.
Senna chronicles the life of the legend who won three world titles with McLaren in 1988, 1990, 1991 and the screening in Singapore will be attended by executive producer and writer of the documentary, Manish Pandey.
Singapore GP, organisers of the Formula 1 race here from Sept 23-25, said proceeds from the show will be donated to the President’s Challenge 2011.
“Ayrton’s death was a huge loss to the motorsport community and this film tells his story beautifully,” said Colin Syn, deputy chairman of Singapore GP. “With almost a month to go before the Singapore Grand Prix, this movie could not have come at a better time. I’m excited to provide local fans with the opportunity to revisit history, while doing their part for the President’s Challenge 2011.”
