Antonio Pinto (City of God, McFarland, USA, Amy, Lord of War, SennaThe Boy Who Harnessed the Wind), Gabriel Ferreira & Felipe Kim (The Mechanism) have composed the original score for the new Netflix original documentary Pelé. The film is directed by David Tryhorn & Ben Nicholas and tells the story of iconic footballer Pelé, his quest for perfection and the mythical status he attained. The movie, which features interviews with Pelé himself, Zagallo, Rivellino, Juca Kfouri & Gilberto Gil, looks back at the extraordinary 12-year period in which the football player, the only man to win three World Cup titles, went from young superstar in 1958 to national hero in 1970. Kevin Macdonald (Touching the Void, The Last King of Scotland) serves as the executive producer of the project, which is produced by Pitch Production. Pelé will premiere this coming Tuesday, February 23, exclusively on Netflix.

Pinto also has David Schurmann’s Aleppo coming up. His other recent projects include Edson Oda’s Nine Days, which premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival and is set to be released in theaters this summer by Sony Pictures Classics, as well as Reinaldo Marcus Green’s Joe Bell, which premiered at last year’s Toronto Film Festival and has been picked up for Solstice Studios for a theatrical release this year.
