Boxing, cruelest of sports, organized hurt, anachronistic spectacle of ritualized brutality, is scrutinized and appraised in a 12 round slide presentation. Jack Johnson's crossing of the Colour Line in 1908, Muhammad Ali's opposition to the Vietnam War, Kim Duk-Koo's death in the ring, Don King's hair, the George Foreman Grill, money, murder and tomato cans are all discussed. The art of trading punches, flawed, unfair and ugly, is presented here with tenderness and affection.
The event will be in English.
