RINGSIDE premiered at the 69th Berllin Film Festival BERLINALE! The film tells the story of a fateful relationship of two Chicago boxers, their fathers and their shared fragile dreams. It is a tale of failure and hope – and what it means to live with dignity. We worked on the film for the past eight years and are excited to finally premiere it!
