BOXING PARADISE

A well-dealt hit on the tip of the chin triggers a double traumatic mechanism: cervial trauma and cerebral graft. That kin dof hit generally causes a sense of loss and black-out, but different after-effects may occur. Lethal as well. Starting from a boxer experience, the short film we present describes this moment, called boxing paradise from the boxing slang. It’s a sort of limbo, here translated into a hotel’s parlour, where six boxers coming from different places meet without knowing why. A time with no time, an impalpable place between life and death that reflects the daily condition every boxer lives in.
