The Fits, an independent film that premiered to rapturous praise at Sundance last January and received a theatrical release in the summer, isn’t technically a boxing picture. Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that it’s not just a boxing picture. Director Anna Rose Holmer has described it as a dance film. It’s also about mass hysteria in close-knit groups of adolescent women in the tradition of Picnic At Hanging Rock and The Falling (yes, that is an actual subgenre of films). But boxing is a part of the world that it portrays, and the way that Holmer, her co-writers, her choreographers, and her brilliant young stars work with the sport is exciting and refreshing.–Vice
After the screening we will discuss the film in relation to the Carlos Rolón: 50 GRAND exhibit.
