Álvaro Torrellas Hurtado | Spain | 2014 | 75 min. | V.O. Spanish subtitled in English
In Seville’s Santa Clara Industrial Estate there is a place unknown to many and mythical for just as many others. It is Bigotes’ gym, a true boxing institution, behind whose doors, among punching balls and rings, all the men and women who train there are equal. But Bigotes’ training transcends fighting skills. Through the stories of Mesías, Kaka and Torero, youths with a history of crime in their past, we see the human side of teaching a sport that has not only taught them to fight with their fists but to face the struggle that is life with a new attitude.
