It is rare indeed that a documentary becomes one of the biggest box-office hits of the year, yet such was the case in Slovakia in 2014 with the release of Daniel Dangl and Lukáš Zednikovič's film on the recently deceased sporting hero.

No Longer Available.
  • Ice hockey superstar Demitra was on board a plane at the start of the 2011-12 season with his teammates from the Russian club Lokomotiv Yaroslavl when, soon after take-off, the plane crashed, killing all but one of the 45 passengers on board.

    This moving film, rich in archival footage, focuses on those closest to Demitra – family, friends and hockey luminaries alike – as it paints a portrait of an eminently decent, humble man whose sporting career attained many great highs and who remains an inspirational figure in Slovakia.
