We came across this
trailer for new documentary The Boxing Girls of
Kabul, which indie distributor In Demand
has just picked up the U.S. rights to.
In this feature by director Ariel
Nasr, a remarkable group of young Afghan women
dream of representing their country as boxers at the 2012 Olympics,
embarking on a journey of both personal and political
transformation. We don't have any info on a New Zealand release
yet, but we recommend you look out for its listing on festival
schedules over the next while, as it looks like one to put on the
'must watch' list.
