In association with AK Boxing of Sheffield, this powerful and dynamic film displays the passion, commitment and energy that drives people to boxing. Filmed right in amongst the action of three female boxers, and displaying a flamboyant and stylised camera set up, I.AM.BOXING was Troikas most visually daring piece to date at that time. Featuring a poetic, driving voice over taken from the words of the boxers themselves, the heart of why these people do what they do is captured.
You WILL want to take to a punch bag when you watch this show! I.AM.BOXING features a stark visual style of simple colours and desaturated environments, which fully show the state of the art facilities of EISS (English Institute Of Sport Sheffield) who gave Troika exclusive access to the venue. AK Boxings very own Kylie Hodgkinson and Allison Donohoe were joined by boxing student Christina Wright for the gruelling shoot, as well as on set assitance from boxing legend Herol Bomber Graham!
The result is no holds barred. Fired up, in your face, loud and thrilling to watch, I.AM.BOXING is as graceful as it is powerful.
