A 32-year-old female boxer, Nadja Ropac, turns her love of boxing into a professional career typically dominated by men. A former kick boxer, she trains in the famous La Habra Boxing Club under the watchful eye of David Martinez, a decorated war hero and the director of an open door La Habra Boxing Foundation that has produced champions like Librado Andrade, Julio Gonzales and Enrique Ornelas. Slav Zatoka follows Nadja during the first few months of her professional career in a beautifully filmed short. This Slav’s debut as a filmmaker. Original music by Jennifer Waleczek.
Fighter’s Room has been accepted to 5 film festivals and won LA Movie Awards for Best Documentary Short in June, 2014.
