A look at Fight Like a Girl


Fight Like a Girl is about women making the choice to stand up and fight for their life”
-Huffington Post, Gerry Gavin

"Morley views the sport and women in the ring with a steady, knowledgeable eye that can only be derived from participatory knowledge gained inside the ropes."
-WBAN, Bernie McCoy

 



WHAT: WORLDWIDE VOD and DVD Release of Fight Like A Girl 
WHEN: NOW

Why would a woman step into the ring, don the gloves and risk her life in front of a blood hungry crowd? In a gritty, first-person narrative, shot over a period of five years, award winning filmmaker Jill Morley delves inside the little-known world of female boxers to meet the women who are passionate about fighting hard. She gets pulled into this culture as she trains for the New York Golden Gloves. From world champions to amateurs, Morley discovers that there’s a common thread in each of their stories. Real emotional history and traumas bubble up, fleshing out a compelling counter-intuitive documentary, where women find a path to recovery and healing through a violent and largely male sport.

This is a powerful film about a relevant and important issue,” says Lise Romanoff, Managing Director/ CEO of Vision Films, Inc, the Distribution Company representing Jill Morley’s Documentary. “Jill Morley sets an example to women around the world who are battling their own demons, showing them that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.”
