KLITSCHKO

Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko. Two extraordinary brothers. Icons, role models and heroes of the masses. The two Ukrainian giants came to Germany in 1996 to become heavyweight boxers - and changed the sport forever. After 15 years of reigning in the ring, they made sporting history in 2008: as the first brothers to be world champions at the same time.

But who are these two intelligent gentlemen, PhDs and polyglots, really? Where do they come from and where are they going? Will they keep the promise they made to their mother - never to compete against each other in the ring? Award-winning director Sebastian Dehnhardt followed the Klitschko brothers on their very personal journey, accompanying them all the way to the locker rooms in the minutes before their fights. Previously unpublished archive material and interviews with opponents and companions around the world paint a picture of the two boxers that is as incredible as it is previously unknown.

The documentary depicts her childhood on Soviet military bases, shaped by socialist drill at the height of the Cold War, and the formative impression the Chernobyl nuclear disaster left on her. The film accompanies her throughout her life - all the way to her meteoric rise to the Olympus of boxing.
