LJUBLJANA: Documentary Houston, We Have a Problem! by Žiga Virc is the first Slovenian film to be aired on Netflix starting 20 July 2017. However, the film will not be available for Eastern Europe.
According to a press release issued by the Slovenian Film Center, Slovenian and East European Netflix subscribers will not be able to access the film, as in these regions the film has been available on HBO GO exclusively since autumn 2016.
"We received the offer from Netflix less than 24 hours after our world premiere at the last year's Tribeca Festival in New York. The excellent reviews in the US media as well as, of course, our American agent – a must if one wishes to conduct business in the United States – contributed decisively to this”, producer Boštjan Virc said in a statement.
