Pooley's boxing doco pulls no punches!

During last year’s lockdown, WIFT NZ member Leanne Pooley produced and co-directed a documentary about Kiwi boxer Joseph Parker that’s guaranteed to make you laugh…and maybe even cry a little. Financed 100% offshore, Fightback - Joseph Parker is now screening in New Zealand on NEON. 

Check out Leanne's work, described as an "intimate and often hilarious" look at the build-up to Parker’s fight with Derek Chisora (a must-win match for both fighters). Leanne says she'd seen Joseph’s lockdown videos.

"I thought they were hilarious. He clearly had so much charisma…I knew he’d be great talent and he was".
