A DOCUMENTARY FEATURE EXPLORING THE LIVES OF THREE MUAY THAI FIGHTERS.
Shot on location in Thailand & Italy, over the first half of 2017. My goal with the photography of this film was to maximize empathy through the use of intensely intimate hanheld camera work, and a dynamic juxtaposition of verite-style natural documentation with stylized, expressive sequences.
I had the pleasure of collaborating with director Ashima Ayer, to whom I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to photograph such uncommonly fascinating characters and settings. Her attention to detail and passion for finding the truth and conveying it in a compelling way pour through every minute of the film. I also was lucky enough to get to collaborate with Ben McIntire who came out to operate a second camera for the first two weeks of production. His additional photography is a beautiful and essential part of the film.
Premiering at the 2019 Kolkata International Film Festival!
