Boxing Booth

16mm 25 mins Doc colour 1984

A personal documentary of the subworld of the travelling boxing booth. The film chronicles Ron Taylor's fairground show the last of it's type to tour the land. The film features the absorption of the director into this fading world. The need to take part in bloody public spectacles to demonstrate manhood may no longer be a cultural imperative; there may be no more hungry fighters but we are quick to invent new excuses for old traditions.
