Ticket proceeds from the film, “Klitschko,” to be shown in Norwegian cinemas will go to humanitarian aid in Ukraine.

Money to go to Norwegian Refugee Council

All proceeds from Norwegian screenings of the 2011 documentary, “Klitschko” will go towards victims of the war in Ukraine. The documentary follows the lives of brothers and (former) heavyweight world champion boxers Vladimir and Vitaly Klitschko. Cinemas nationwide will screen the film on April 5 and proceeds will go to the Norwegian Refugee Council for use on victims of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Ukrainians in Norway can watch the film for free.

Jan Vardøen, cinema owner and initiator of the idea, spoke of a small gesture that he was able to be a part of. “With this, we can do something where we live, take a trip to the cinema and watch a cracking good film and learn about Ukraine at the same time,” he said in a press release.

The two brothers famously never fought each other despite each becoming heavyweight boxing champions. Vitaly is now Mayor of Kyiv and has been inspirationally swapping his boxing gloves and mayoral duties for army khakis in defense of the city.
