Namibia — Cuba’s female boxing revolution

Can you imagine a symbiosis of african-cuban music and boxing?

This short doc tells the story of Namibia, a woman that has been training boxing for years, despite the fact that Cuban women were banned from competing in the sport. Besides her strong personality and strength to win, what we love the most about this doc is the way music combines with Namibia’s movement. This doc was directed by Maceo Frost and produced by Made by Forest. Thumbs up for the editor Andreas Arvidsson and for Jorge Olivares Rivas, in charge of Sound Design (at The Lab Sweden). The music is by Spectrum Trio. More info at Made by Forest website.

Even with a sleepy face, she’s always ready for a challenge. Highly proactive and full of “scalabis” culture. Audiovisual is her thing and her inspiration sources are endless: from shorts films on Vimeo to the one and only Justin Timberlake.
