In Her Corner – (0:18:37)

‘In Her Corner’ is an intimate look into the lives of three very different women who box. Boxing is about discipline, power, and movement. It is violent yet beautiful, brutal and refined for those who practice it. Delilah Ruiz, a mother of three, boxes professionally as “La Cobra” and yearns for a world championship title that is at last within reach. Dee Hamaguchi, who started women’s boxing at the Golden Gloves twenty-five years ago, continues to push boundaries of creativity within the sport she loves. And Maddie Roche, a rising amateur in the field, turns to boxing to alleviate anxiety and depression.

OPEN YOUR LIPS – (0:08:26)
Directed by Eleonora Ivone
A story begun and never finished.
A story caused by the most ferocious instincts of the human being and that is repeated every day.
It is terrible but 85% of cases of pedophilia occur in the family.
Coming out of pain and guilt is impossible for an abused child. Even the years cure the wounds.
And what happens in the abused child’s brain? And above all how does that child become an adult? Sometimes the desire to do justice alone for those adult children is the only way to go.
For those who have suffered the worst wrongs “there is no forgiveness and there is no revenge” there is only the desperate need to go further.
