Gleason's Gym is the oldest boxing gym in the United States. It is located at Dumbo in the Brooklyn area facing Wall Street.
Like New York itself, the gym is a place where races and cultures meet, and people from the most diverse backgrounds and ages come together to work out.
"Training at Gleason's Gym" documentary proposes to portray every-day life in this temple of boxing, that witnessed the history of great boxing and immigration in New York.
The documentary will be a study on boxing, both as a sport as well as a mirror of integration in New York by following the vicissitudes of a group of professional athletes from different origins, all trying to fulfill their "American Dream". It will talk about this sport, brutal and technical, violent and graceful all at once, and with an eye to sociology, it will show how people from different countries, religions and cultures can live together united by their passion for boxing.
