2017 is a documentary that tells the story of EuroBasket 2017 through the words of all twelve players, the head coach, his coaching staff and the leadership of the national team, who recounted the events the way they experienced them. This makes the story quite different to the one known to the fans. At times, the emotions awoken in the speakers say more than their words.

2017 is a documentary that tells the story of EuroBasket 2017 through the words of all twelve players, the head coach, his coaching staff and the leadership of the national team, who recounted the events the way they experienced them. This makes the story quite different to the one known to the fans. At times, the emotions awoken in the speakers say more than their words.

Winning the title of European champions in basketball in 2017 is doubtlessly the greatest success in the history of Slovenian team sports. What makes it even greater is that it came as a surprise to many and was achieved by a team that even some of the most loyal fans doubted because it included many unknowns – from the new head coach and the young 18-year-old hope, who played in the national team jersey for the first time, to the veterans haunted by a few demons from previous big competitions.

It is a story that deserves a “document” in the form of a film, one that is not merely a recap, but reveals much more than just a sports story. This film thus tells a story about a team, a story about collective spirit and the power of community, which is very important and topical in a time of increasing individualism both in sports and the broader society.
