A documentary film about a legendary generation of the Yugoslav handball led by Nenad Perunicic, Nedeljko Jovanovic, Dejan Peric and Dragan Skrbic is recorded by Videostroj production in Belgrade last week.
The story was written by Handball-Planet.com and Balkan-Handball.com editor Zika Bogdanovic, following generation of fantastic players stuck in the moment of the international embargo in 1992 against Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) which prevent them to participate at Olympic Games in Barcelona in summer 1992.
These players were staying in two best Yugoslav teams at the moment RK Crvena zvezda and RK Partizan which provided an unforgettable season in which both clubs couldn’t compete in European Cups due international sanctions.
Play-Off Final was spectacular, played in front of 6-7.000 fans at “Pionir” hall in Belgrade with a lot of turnovers ended by penalty shot-out, which is a culmination of the story.
- We really enjoyed the last week. It was interesting and beautiful. The culmination of emotions was when we heard a voice of famous TV commentator from that period Srdjan Knezevic and noise from the stands which took us 27 years back to that day of the final. I hope that people will enjoy reminding on the generation and that historical match which is linked with us. I knew, from the moment when the match was ended, that those match will become a part of handball history. It was spectacular, the atmosphere was amazing, it was the first time that we play at “Pionir” hall. It is in the memory of all people who are following sport in Serbia, but I couldn’t imagine that we will make a film 27 years after it. That is not the only point of the film as people will have chance to see how we practice and think in that period of life and of course, our disappointment when we stayed out of Olympics three days before the official opening ceremony in Barcelona – said legendary line-player Dragan Skrbic.
The premiere will be organized in the upcoming months.
