Saturday afternoon at the boxing movies …

Popcorn

When I was a kid, we used to go to the movies on Saturday afternoon. It cost a dollar, and we could see two films and a short! Time to grab the popcorn!

First up is Shadowboxers by filmmaker Katya Bankowsky. The 49-minute documentary from 1999 followed the early career of boxer Lucia Rijker. It received rave reviews at the time.

 

A short film from 1901 entitled Gordon Sisters Boxing from the Thomas A. Edison company.

 

Filmed in 2002, Thai Boxing: A Fighting Chance by Susanne Cornwall Calvin, follows three fighters: Gong-Prai Sorjintana, a 13-year-old from the town of Ayutthaya fighting to raise money for University, Sam Sheridan a 27-year-old Harvard Grad named and Boon-Term Kitmuti, a 29-year-old mother of two who wanted to box when she was younger, before Muay Thai was legal for women. The film is narrated by Jason Statham.
