Set along the border of Thailand and Burma, Hélène Choquett's documentary Fists Of Pride
chronicles the lives of the young children - most of them the children of illegal Burmese immigrants - training as muay thai fighters to support their families.
Fists of Pride follows Little Tiger and his fellow fighters as their Thai
coaches prepare them for the annual Water Festival competition. In a
boxing camp on the Thai-Burmese border the children of mostly illegal
migrant workers fleeing Burma live and train for prize fights. In a
region where combat sports have always been a matter of honor and money,
the film reveals their daily struggles. Bets are open and as the hope
of prize money rises, the young boxers contemplate what it could mean
for them and their famillies.
The trailer for this looks like remarkable stuff, the story of children forced to grow up far too soon. Take a look below.
