After much anticipation, SENNA premiered this weekend in New York and Los Angeles with a wider release slated for next week. The screenings included Q&A sessions with writer, Manish Pandey and broadcaster, John Bisignano whose coverage from ESPN in the late 80's and early 90's is featured prominently in the film.
The after party was a mix of fans coming out of the theater, people associated with the film, and Formula 1 insiders some of whom had known Ayrton Senna personally from the Formula 1 circuit. It was a great night to talk about the amazing film and the life of Ayrton Senna.
John Bisignano was kind enough to accept a shirt from me and even wore it at the party. We had a great conversation about his time covering Formula 1 for ESPN and the origins of his career.
The film's promoters put on a truly special event on Saturday to correspond with the premier. 3 Formula 1 cars from 60's and 70's on display on the streets of New York.
