Bukom is a tiny shanty town suburb of Accra in Ghana, and a factory for the toughest, most skilled boxers in the world. The Fighting Spirit tells the story of three fighters, two men and a woman, as they battle their way to the rings of Europe and America to fight for the biggest prizes in the business. Witnessing their triumphs and defeats in and out of the ring, this is a story of modern Africans' ambitions as they fight for respect and reward, for their tribe and their home.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
