Film About Goran Ivanišević to Debut at Zagreb Film Festival

CroatiaThe documentary film Goran’s Way, detailing Croatian tennis star Goran Ivanišević’s 2001 Wimbledon victory premiers tonight at the Zagreb Film Festival.

Although more than twelve years have passed, it is incredible how many people vividly remember that summer day. The reminiscences of John McEnroe, Patrick Rafter, Tim Henman, Srđan (Goran’s father) and Goran Ivanišević and others lucky enough to watch the match on Central Court that Monday will help viewers relive go that day again. It is a story about persistence and Goran’s spite. A story about the success of a man who seemed predestined to fail. The film is directed by Leon Rizmaul and produced by Croatian Radiotelevision (HRT). Goran’s Way (Goranov Wimbledon) will be shown on TV in Croatia (HRT) on 5 November.
