The Ukrainian premiere of the documentary "Klitschko", directed by German Sebastian Dehnhardt, was held in Kyiv theater “Ukraine” on March 12. The film follows careers of Vitali and Vladimir from childhood to heavyweight success. Dehnhardt was ambitious in following the Klitschkos for two years and in capturing interesting moments of their lives. The documentary makers also found a boatload of archival material of the brothers’ early years, that fans will surely enjoy. During a news conference after the premiere Klitschko felt free, responding to the questions of journalists about their plans in sport and politics. As it’s known, Vitali Klitschko has strong political ambitions. Younger, Vladimir, is staying away from politics, but hopes to retain his four boxing crowns. Brothers are going to present the autobiographical documentary all over Ukraine.
