Netflix are releasing a documentary film about the German Formula 1 star Michael Schumacher. The film, cleverly titled “Schumacher”, will premiere globally on September 15th and is fully supported by his family. The seven-time World Champion suffered severe brain damage during a skiing accident in 2013 and was placed in a medically-induced coma. He has since regained consciousness but is still in recovery.
The film explores the many facets that made and define this complex athlete and accompanies him on his meteoric rise in this challenging and dangerous sport, which is followed by millions worldwide. His strong will and triumphant fight to win against all odds put Michael Schumacher at the centre of global attention. Michael Schumacher’s journey has captured the imagination of millions, but there is a lot more than motor racing to the success of this very private man. However, it is not only his fighting spirit and striving for perfection that define Michael Schumacher as a person; his self-doubt and insecurities complete the picture of a sensitive and reflected man.
At the heart of Michael’s story are his parents, his children and Corinna Schumacher, his childhood sweetheart and the love of his life. They are now ready to tell his story…
Expect a trailer in the coming weeks.
