"Down, But Not Out!" captures all the action of four amateur women boxers as they step for the first time into the ring. Each fighter, ANNA, DARIA, AGA and ALICJA go all out to win as they are challenged to face an unknown opponent at a box competition organized by the amateur boxing association within their league. We also witness the trainer, PRZEMEK, his mental and emotional connection with each fighter as he pushes the physical strength of Aga, the mental toughness of Alicja, the vulnerability of Daria and the desire of Anna as they each exceed their own personal limits.Written by

Appreciating women boxers in a match
I'm a huge sports enthusiast and love boxing in general, it's a sport that is not only physically demanding but a mental contest as well, so when I saw the trailer to this showcasing women boxing, I couldn't wait to watch the film. What I liked about Down but Not Out was the rawness of boxing. I like how the director was able to catch on film first the men's bouts and then the women's. The contrast between them makes you wonder, as an outsider, why women would participate in such an aggressive combative sport. It also made me understand and appreciate a woman boxer, showing a true test of her physical strength, mental alertness and courage. The coach was also amazing, you could see he invested his heart and soul into the training of his boxers.
