Schumacher is considered by many to be the sport’s greatest to ever win seven championship titles.

But a 2013 skiing accident left him with a brain injury, and the family was incredibly private in discussing his condition or making public comments about him—until this documentary.

The documentary will feature interviews with Schumacher’s family, including his wife Corinna, father Rolf and brother Ralf.

His two children, Gina and Mick, now driving Formula 1 for Haas, are interviewed, as are motorsport figures such as Jean Todt, Bernie Ecclestone, Sebastian Vettel, Mika Häkkinen, Damon Hill, Flavio Briatore and David Coulthard.

Filmmakers will also be able to share never-before-seen archive material, thanks to the support of the family.
