Female boxers wanted for documentary

A documentary film-maker is looking for female boxers.

She asks:

Are you a professional or amateur female boxer? Do you coach female boxers? Do you want to have your say on the decision to include women’s boxing in the 2012 Olympics? Do you have a story to tell from the ring or the gym?

MAYHEM tmc Limited, a London-based theatre company, is seeking contributors

for a short documentary on female boxing that we are producing with

independent film-maker Alice Holland Ballard as part of our current project


The project aims to reflect the lives and stories of those people who know

that boxing matters. We’d like to document the importance of the sport

– and the clubs it takes place in – in light of the 2012 Olympics.

Shooting is scheduled throughout March and April in London.

Please contact alice[at]themayhemcompany.net for details.
