FEARLESS

Wojciech Lorenc | 2020 | 89 MINS
USA
The fortunes of two boxers are used as an allegory for the challenges facing people of colour and immigrants in the United States.

In Detail

This absorbing documentary, shot entirely at a gym in the small town of Conroe, Texas, follows a small boy and a young woman as they prepare for their respective fights.

It is not a film about boxing; it is, rather, a study of dedication, even desperation, through unpacking the concept of American optimism and the unrealistic expectations that accompany it. Their struggles are mirrored by that of the gym itself, which is threatened with closure.
