venus-serena-black-documentaryMagnolia Pictures will release the anticipated documentary film Venus and Serena on iTunes on April 4, 2013, and in theaters May 10, 2013. The film catalogs the lives of veteran tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams as they dominate the tennis circuit and face life-threatening health problems. The documentary will take viewers behind closed doors through behind the scenes video and interviews with figures such as Bill Clinton, Billie Jean King, John McEnroe, Arnon Milchan, Gay Telese, and Anna Wintour.

Here’s a quick synopsis of the documentary from Tennis Now:

Venus and Serena takes an unfiltered look into the remarkable lives of the greatest sister-act professional tennis has ever seen. In a sport where they were not welcomed, the indomitable Williams sisters faced the opposition with grace and courage not only breaking new ground for female and African American athletes everywhere, but dominating the women’s game for over a decade. The film tells the inspiring story of how these two women, against all odds, but the help of visionary parents, made it to the top.

Below is the new full-length poster released for the film.
