Directed by Hanns-Bruno Kammertons and Michael Wech, Schumacher’s documentary will include never-seen-before footages and interviews with his family and competitors. Apart from Schumacher’s documentary, the other sporting biography which will release on the 12-day gala event is British award-winning filmmaker Asif Kapadia’s “Diego Maradona”.

Sabine Kehm, the spokeswoman for Schumacher’s family, expressed her happiness after completion of the project.

“We are happy this film will be in the hands of such ambitious and sensitive professionals”

Schumacher suffered traumatic head injuries in a skiing accident at the Meribel ski resort in France in December 2013. After being induced in a medical coma for six months, Schumacher has been treated at home but has never been seen in public. The family, too, has given scarce updates regarding his health while maintaining his privacy.

We, here at Sportsindiashow, wish Michael Schumacher a speedy recovery.
