Klitschko Documentary is Part of The Tribeca Film Festival

The fifth annual Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival will include the world premiere of Klitschko, a documentary exploring the rise of six-foot-six Ukrainian brothers Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko who made history in 2008, becoming the first brothers in boxing to hold world titles at the same time.  After emigrating to Germany to begin careers in heavyweight boxing in 1996, the sport was never the same.  Through an engaging mix of candid interviews and absorbing fight footage, Klitschko offers a captivating glimpse into the makings of these champion boxing brothers.

The Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival has become the premier showcase for independent films about sports and competition.  In addition to giving sports fans and movie-lovers the opportunity to be among the first to see new sports-themed films, the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival hosts a gala premiere, conversations and a family Sports Day where fans can enjoy free, interactive, sports-related games and activities and meet some of New York’s most popular athletes.

This year’s Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival is comprised of six documentary feature films that run the gamut of sports. The Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival runs during the Tribeca Film Festival (April 20-May 1) in lower Manhattan.

It's unfortunate but I doubt many of the supposed boxing fans on here will be interested. Stories focusing on rapists and ex-convicts are far more likely to be appealing to them.
