"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

A retro artistic boxing doc
I really loved this one! The film was not your typical commercial sports doc but more retro, artistic and dreamlike, somehow more pure. The choice to shoot it in black and white worked wonderfully with the fighters as they were composed of shapes and forms. Their movements in light and shadow pulled me into their boxing world. I also loved watching the mentor-ship of the coach with the women boxers. He was really motivating even though they all did not win a gold, his words to push them to excel themselves in the future even motivated me. I would recommend this doc to anyone who would like to see something different to the mainstream sports films out there. Great job to the filmmaker for putting this together!
