Diamantino

by Gabriel Abrantes & Daniel Schmidt, 2018

But he said that nowadays there are no longer artists like Mr. Michael Angelo. They no longer exist.

Diamantino, the world’s premiere soccer star loses his special touch and ends his career in disgrace. Searching for a new purpose, the international icon sets on a delirious odyssey where he confronts neo-fascism, the refugee crisis, genetic modification, and the hunt for the source of genius.
