FILM FESTIVAL

MARCH 2020

Commissioned by the BFI and the Guardian.

An enthralling meditation on the ruling passion of four Cuban men who train and fight cocks. Part ethnography, part character study, Fidel’s Fight builds to a climactic battle in gorgeously filmed verité scenes, languorously edited. The innovative alternation of sync sound and the sparest of piano scores evoke the tension of the spectators, for whom the sport feels as life-and-death as it literally is for their cocks. A lyrical, elliptical glimpse at an unknown world and obscure obsession.
