With This Ring, a Film about Indian Women Boxers

With four world titles, three Asian titles and nine Indian national titles packed around her waist, amateur boxer Mary Kom isn’t someone you’d mess with. Not that you could tell from looking at her; she fights at 46 or 48 kgs and has a grin wider than the Cheshire cat.

Spring demo 2010 (With This Ring) from with this ring / anna & ameesha on Vimeo.

With This Ring isn't finished yet so this is just a taster. The two film makers, Ameesha Joshi and Anna Sarkissian, have been fascinated by the Indian Women’s team since they became the most successful women’s amateur team at the 2006 Championships. I've been reading their blog on the dramas of making the film on Women Boxers in India. Or you can check up on Mary Kom on her site. It's enough to make you want to get in the ring - or is it?
