Image from the film We Will be the World Champions
An uplifting sports drama about the rise of Yugoslav basketball, this Serbian/Croatian co-production follows the national team through its many trials and tribulations and culminates in the deciding match of the 1970s World Championship against the United States. Depicting the lives of those who founded the team in the 1940s and those who brought it fame in the 1970s, it captures the sense of camaraderie that once defined not only sport, but the Yugoslav experience as such. In Serbian with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
