FIGHTING BACK 2012 premiering in 2 days
From the treacherous streets of inner-city America to the edge of glory Emmy Award winner photographer Anthony Suau and world renowned jazz artists Curtis Lundy, Victor Lewis and Frank Lancy team up to present one man’s struggle to bring hope to the youth of Cleveland, Ohio.
At the heart of inner-city Cleveland’s extensive post-industrial unemployment, wide spread housing foreclosures and abandoned properties, Coach Fred Wilson created Inner City Boxing in hopes of transforming the growing number of drug dealers and users into successful boxers.
The story follows Coach Fred and one such boxer, Delorian Gary as he battles for recognition and the 2011 Ohio state title at the State Fair in Columbus.
Not since “Hoop Dreams” has the fight to glory been so powerfully portrayed.
