HOLLYWOOD FILM ON MACEDONIAN FOOTBALL TEAM



Culture.

Branko Lustig (pictured in the middle), the famous Oscar-winning producer has joined ranks with Macedonian movie director Darko Mitrevski to shoot the film “The Third Halftime.”

“The Third Halftime” is the story of Ilješ Špic, the Jewish coach of the Skopje football team, “Macedonia” which during the Second World War, under his leadership became the champion of the fascist football league.

The movie will be produced by the Hollywood production company King Roads Entertainment. The owner of the company, the famous director, Steven Spielberg will also be involved in the team that visits Macedonia soon, in search of shooting locations.

“This is a story about football that under the specific historical circumstances has become more than a game. It has become a battleground between good and evil,” Mitreski says.

The director who also wrote the script promises spectacular historical football matches from the 1930 and 1940s but says the movie will also reveal how Macedonia lived under fascist occupation and the sufferings of Macedonia's Jews at the time.

Nearly all of Macedonia Jews perished in notorious Nazi death camps during the Second World War.

“One of my favourite scenes from the movie is when 10,000 spectators at the then Skopje stadium shout the name of the team “Macedonia”. A boy climbs on a tree who conveys the events to those who are outside the stadium and says 'they are shouting the name of our team.' 'That is not just the name of our team, that's the name of our country!' one man says to himself,” Mitrevski told local Dnevnik daily.

Lustig won two Academy awards, the first in 1993 for the production of Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler's List” and the second in 2001 for the epic movie “Gladiator” by Ridley Scott.

The movie will have cast with Hollywood actors but the director says there will be Macedonian actors involved too.


MD: Very nice! This is huge for Macedonia, this man has worked on great movies, and made Schindler's list together with Spielberg!! Looking forward seeing this movie!

    IN 1930-1940 PARASITES OF SKOPIA DIDN'T KNOW YET, THAT WERE ''MACEDONIANS''...
    THIS WAS DISCOVERED LATELY, AFTER DNA EXAMINATIONS TO PROISTORIC 'MONKIES'...

    Our Macedonian grandfathers were born before the 1930's and 1940's, they called themselves Macedonians, just as their fathers - our great-grand father's had done before them...

    racist greeks have nothing to do with Macedonia prior to annexing 51% of the land in 1913 with help of the super powers of the day - that is fact! Where were the greek claims towards Macedonia prior to the early 1990's? Non-existant!

    my baba is from the 1930-1940s and is still alive and well.
    she seems to know that she was macedonian back then.

    Macedonians have immigrated to many countries since the late 1800's and they have identified as MACEDONIAN so shut up all your pathetic "invented by Tito in 1945 theory".

    There was a real DNA test done about 15 years ago if you care to remember. Go and read it and you'll never make a DNA joke again.

    The name of FYROM before 1944 wash VARDARSKA.

    People from vardarska are
    Slavs: 1,297,981 64.18
    Albanians: 509,083 25.17
    Turks: 77,959 3.85
    Roma people 53,879 2.66
    Serbs: 35,939 1.78
    Vlachs: 9,695 0.48
    others: 38,011 1.88

    Around 200.000 of them are HELLINES (GREEKS)

    FYROMIANS OR vARDARSKIANΣ try to stiling the History of Greece by changing the name from Vardarska to "Macedonia"

    Macedonia is the largest geographic region of Northern Greece,and the berth place of Alexander Great Μέγας Αλέξανδρος, the King of Greece!!!

    UNITED VARDASKA

    Shame on you Greeks...Shame on you!
    i can't understand about the veto. What?...You are afraid of litle Macedonia with 2 milion people?

    You are standing in our way to progress...Why?..I know why. Because you are a Fashits and Fuckin Morrons!...Fashits..Stop right now...You are Grece...we are MACEDONIA and always be MACEDONIA.
    MACEDONIA FOREVER...LONG LIVE MACEDONIA AND MACEDONIAN PEOPLE.
    GOD PUNISH EVERYBODY WHO ATTACKS MACEDONIA. JUSTICE...
    FUCK OFF GREECE
    WE ARE NOT FYROM or SKOPJE...If we are that than you are FORMER TURKISH OTOMAN REPUBLIC OF GREECE OR ATHENS...
    WE ARE NOT DANGER FOR YOU...stopped The world se who is right...

    Shame on you Fyromians

    you steal a nation History
    becorse you are slaves


    look at thes reports
    is it alie???
    stupids


    textbooks, including the Military Academy textbook published in 2004 by the Military Academy "General Mihailo Apostolski" in the FYROM capital city, contain maps showing that a "Greater Macedonia" extends many miles south into Greece to Mount Olympus and miles east to Mount Pirin in Bulgaria;


    Whereas a television report in recent years showed students in a state-run school in the FYROM still being taught that parts of Greece, including Greek Macedonia, are rightfully part of the FYROM;


    Whereas a pre-eminent goal of the United Nations Interim Accord was to stop the FYROM from utilizing, since its admittance to the United Nations in 1993, what the Accord calls, "propaganda", including in school textbooks;


    # During World War II, Yugoslavia's Marshal Tito established Western Macedonia as one of Yugoslavia's six republics. Before World War II, the area was referred to as VARDARSKA.

    # With the appropriation of the name "Macedonia", Tito also created a mythic language (Slavic in origin, based on West Bulgarian dialects) called "Macedonian"

    It is noted that FYROM's proper name is VARDAR as shown in the 1931 Constitution of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia

    US Gongress urges the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) to stop hostile propaganda and find a mutually acceptable solution with Greece on the name issue
