Once brothers, then enemies – their unity through the Yugoslavian national team and their immigrant experiences in America shattered by a war that redefined them according to their Serbian and Croatian roots. It’s a heartbreaking story, one that feels as if it should have been preventable at the same time that it seems utterly unavoidable, and it’s a credit to the filmmaker that we leave the documentary understanding and respecting the emotions and actions of both men. ‘Once Brothers’ is directed by Michael Tolajian, but it comes from the heart of Divac, who narrates the film while retracing his steps from the quiet Serbian town where he was born, to the gym where the Yugoslav national team trained, to the hotel in Los Angeles that was his first American home, to the streets of downtown Zagreb in Croatia, where Divac hadn’t set foot since before war broke out in 1991.
Michael Tolajian filmski je redatelj i scenarist. Osim filma ‘Nekoć braća’, radio je na sportskim projektima o golfu, World Series of Poker te dvjema košarkaškim temama: ‘The Year of the Yao’ i ‘Whatever Happened to Michael Ray?’.
