BOXING ON FILM: PART 2
October 21 – October 31
In October, Anthology concludes its two-part film series celebrating the longstanding and ongoing ties between boxing and cinema (ties that, as film scholar Dan Streible has demonstrated in his book “Fight Pictures” – as well as during a special presentation in Part 1 of the series – are ones that stretch back to the very beginnings of the film industry). This second chapter features a particularly eclectic selection of films, including debut works by such disparate filmmakers as Stanley Kubrick (DAY OF THE FIGHT), Charles Dekeukeleire (COMBAT DE BOXE), and Walter Hill (HARD TIMES); two very different chronicles of Muhammad Ali (by legendary photographer and filmmaker William Klein and video artist Anton Perich); innovative documentaries from Portugal (BELARMINO) and Austria (I JUST CAN’T GO ON); and Hollywood classics THE CHAMP, THE HARDER THEY FALL, and REQUIEM FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT.
Co-programmed by Sean Nam, who also wrote the introduction and (unless otherwise noted) all feature film descriptions. Special thanks to Carlos Acevedo (The Cruelest Sport); Jane Gutteridge & Johanne St-Amant (National Film Board of Canada); Ruth Hodgins (Walker Art Center); Dave Jennings (Sony); William Klein; Sara Moreira (Cinemateca Portuguesa); Kristie Nakamura (WB); Anton Perich; Bill Powers; Nicolas Rapold; Lynanne Schweighofer (Library of Congress); MM Serra (Film-Makers’ Coop); and Claudia Siefen (Austrian Film Museum).
