Director Statement

This world maintains the essence of 50s culture while existing two degrees outside of historical reality. This club is a place of hazy blue skies, overgrown grass stained with blood, with pastels, lace, bruises, and bloody noses. Instead of the toxically masculine, repressed anger-fueled world of men’s boxing, the women’s boxing is full of joy and freedom. Every head-spinning hit is accompanied by an adrenaline-filled giggle and every match ends in a proud group hug.

These diametrically opposed ideas work in harmony to a space of absolute freedom that everyone deserves to find a version of in their own lives.
