Music video for 'Lowlands', a song by Belgian band 'Roscoe'.
A strange and harsh coming-of-age story, in which a son falls victim to his father's wish of earning big money with illegal street-fights. The boy becomes a victorious fighter, until faith strikes upon him.
This story, set against the atmospherical backdrop of Bucharest's suburbs, talks about the expectations a father puts into his son.

In association with Mother, Port Magazine look at one of South London’s greatest amateur sporting institutions in this short film.
Located under the arches of Waterloo station, for over 100 years boys have gone to the Fitzroy Lodge to discover the essence of their masculinity. In Port issue 7, we spoke to David Matthews, Glenn Charles and Daniel Day-Lewis about their thoughts on boxing. Here, we see the club in action and remember Mick Carney, MBE the “thin…stylish, handsome dog” at the heart of the Fitzroy Lodge who sadly passed away last year.
