“Nowitzki – Der perfekte Wurf” on the big screen

On September 16th Cologne will be the host city for the premier of BROADVIEW TVs latest documentary “Nowitzki – Der perfekte Wurf” (eng. title “Nowitzki – The Perfect Shot”).

The film covers the story of Nowitzki’s rise to the peaks of fame and Show Business starting off at one of Germany’s regional basketball leagues. It’s the story of the fascinating relationship with Holger Geschwindner, his discoverer, coach and mentor. The physicist recognized young Dirk Nowitzki’s talent early on and, with a mix of ambitious daring and scientific precision, led him all the way to the top. It is a Film about Dirk Nowitzki and Holger Geschwindner: how they became who they are. It is about the unique relationship between the cosmopolitan mentor and his timid student, who made it to where his teacher had previously only dreamed of: the NBA Championship.

The film dives into the world of the player and his role model, it tells their mutual development, trust, and tests of endurance. It is a story about fears and triumphs, about struggles and losses. Famous club owners, coaches and players share their experiences with Dirk Nowitzki and Holger Geschwindner on the rise to fame. German engineering meets NBA Basketball.

I guess this is my first full page photograph in a big glossy magazine. It was published in November last year in the “Bunte” and shows Sylvie Meis better known as Sylvie van der Vaart attending the charity event “RTL Spendenmarathon” in Cologne. Good feeling!!!
