Gloves Off - 2010

 

         

ʻGloves Offʼ explored the subject of ʻThe Fighterʼ through stories told by people from the Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander,

Australian South Sea Islander and the wider multicultural communities of Mackay Queensland. This process culminated

in the writing of a screenplay and the making of a short film.

 

 

These were stories;

– Of people who made their living in the traveling boxing tents throughout Queensland

 

– Of young people who ended up in jail for assault and fought the urge to drink

 

– Of people who stayed at home and struggled to keep the family together

 

– Of people who fought the voices inside their head
