Stunning short film for Port magazine focuses on London boxing gym

There’s something about boxing that has long beguiled creatives – maybe it’s the purity of the sport, the complex and hard-to-relate-to reasons that draw people into the ring and the balletic rhythms so paradoxically present in such a brutal context. For its new issue, Port magazine has commissioned filmmaker Anthony Austin to create this beautiful, moving and moody film on the Fitzroy Lodge boxing gym under Waterloo station. Made in conjunction with Mother, it’s a visual feast of a five minutes, shot with a care and precision that make it really stand out.
