Still image from the film Boxing Gym
The subject of the film is an Austin, Texas institution, Lord's Gym, which was founded over 20 years ago by Richard Lord, a former professional boxer. A wide variety of people of all ages, races, ethnicities and social classes train at the gym: men, women, children, doctors, lawyers, judges, business men and women, immigrants, professional boxers and people who want to become professional boxers alongside amateurs who love the sport and teenagers who are trying to develop strength and assertiveness. The gym is an example of the American “melting pot” where people meet, talk, and train. (2K DCP. 91 min. Not Rated.)
