The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) has announced KLITSCHKO as nominee for the 34th Annual Sports Emmy® Awards. The Awards will be given out at the prestigious Frederick P. Rose Hall on Tuesday, May 7th, 2013 in New York City.
KLITSCHKO tells the captivating story of the boxing world’s most famous brothers: Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko. From the socialist drill of their childhood in the Ukraine, and their first successes as amateurs, to their move to Germany and subsequent rise as international stars on the verge of holding the championship titles of all five boxing federations (Wladimir secured this with his unanimous World Boxing Association win against David Haye on July 2nd, 2011).
Along the way they experience defeats and setbacks, low points and triumphant comebacks as well as conflicts with each other. Exciting conversations with companions and opponents, including the very first with the Klitschkos’ parents, give insight into their personal lives. Plus never-before-seen footage of the draining preparations for a fight and the spectacular boxing matches.
Director Sebastian Dehnhardt composes an intimate and fascinating portrait of two exceptional athletes who are, before all else, brothers. KLITSCHKO is available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
