The Fighting Spirit
Dir: George Amponsah
Bukom is a tiny shantytown suburb of Accra in Ghana, a factory for the toughest,
most skilled boxers in the world. The Fighting Spirit tells the story of three
fighters, two men and a woman, as they battle their way to the glittering rings of
Europe and America to fight for the biggest prizes in the business. Witnessing their
triumphs and defeats in and out of the ring, this is a story of modern Africans'
ambitions as they fight for respect and reward, for their tribe and their home.
Screening will be followed by a Q&A with the Director.
