We wanted Libertas readers to know that the superb documentary film Klitschko is now available on DVD. Klitschko tells the story of the famous boxing brothers Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko, covering the brothers’ upbringing in the socialist Ukraine (their father served in the Ukrainian Air Force, and was a first-responder to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster), to their early successes as amateurs, to their move to Germany and subsequent rise as international boxing stars and holders of the championship titles of all five boxing federations. Vitali (the older brother), of course, also recently entered politics and ran for President of the Ukraine – capturing 14% of the vote.
LFM’s Joe Bendel reviewed Klitschko at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival, and gave it an A grade, calling it “[b]riskly paced and quite informative … highly recommended.” The movie is available now from Corinth Films here.
