Starring Zoella, TomSka and Niki and Sammy, The Creators is an original documentary directed by Oscar-nominee Nanette Burstein. Providing a glimpse into the lives of the internet's biggest stars, seen from a different angle.
The award winning, Oscar nominated, and critically acclaimed documentary "On The Ropes" takes the audience into a New York ghetto gym where young boxers trapped in the slums and projects struggle and sweat tirelessly for a shred of hope that they may some day leave the hopelessness of their life behind. The film offers a limited look at the underbelly of boxing, something which few boxing fans ever see, as it examines the painful existence and enormous courage of three young boxing hopefuls. Unlike other sports where professionals scout college campuses cutting deals for big money, this little indie documentary shows the real and often raw deal and may help answer the one question so often asked about the sport of boxing: Why in the hell would anyone want to step into a ring and risk getting beat up?
