The Unbelievable True Story of SAM LANGFORD
Juarez, Mexico 1923: Drunken Mariachi music reels across a smoke-filled Mexican boxing stadium as two aging fighters - one Black, one white - meet in the center of the ring. Jim "The Fireman" Flynn towers over his opponent, Sam "The Bonecrusher" Langford. It is a fight to the finish and one of them has a secret. This 12 minute short premiered at the Boston Film Festival in September 2020, many more festivals to come.
It was featured on CBC, CBC's THE NATIONAL and CTV, and the feature film version is in progress.
