Boxing Gym

Fortnight 2010, Feature film, 1h31

Synopsis

Austin, Texas. Lord’s Gym was founded sixteen years ago by Richard Lord, a former professional boxer. A wide variety of people of all ages, races, ethnicities and social classes train at the gym: men, women, children, doctors, lawyers, judges, business men and women, immigrants, professional boxers and people who want to become professional boxers alongside amateurs who love the sport and teenagers who are trying to develop strength and assertiveness. The gym is an example of the American “melting pot” where people meet, talk, and train.

Director

Frederick Wiseman

Frederick Wiseman was born in Boston in 1930. As a documentary filmmaker, he has examined the major North American institutions. After studying law at Yale, he decided to devote his life to directing, producing and editing his own films. To the rhythm of one a year, he has directed and produced a series of documentaries in which he pursues his study of the rules of “living together” in the great institutions.
