An international soccer superstar loses his special touch and ends his career in disgrace. Searching for a new purpose, he sets out on a cosmic odyssey in search of the source of genius. African refugees, right-wing extremists, fake nuns, and real evil sisters are just some of the folks who Diamantino encounters on his quest for answers.
“Part political satire, part fantasy, part I-don’t-even-know-what, Diamantino is exactly the type of surreal concoction that begs to be discovered by unsuspecting audiences.” – Globe & MailGlobe & Mail
“Diamantino has everything…Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt create a world that’s as strikingly real as it is fantastic, injecting absurdism into the very real nationalism that has overtaken more than one nation”Miami New Times
