  2. "If you take “The Fighter” and strip off its melodramatic arc and the stars’ and the industry’s self-regard, then compress what’s left into 12 poetically concise minutes, you get something almost as good, almost as grown-up, as “I Beat Mike Tyson." - Boston Globe

    In 2005, an unknown Irish boxer beat Mike Tyson in front of hundreds
    of thousands of people. Then he disappeared.

    Filmmaker Joshua Z Weinstein rediscovers boxer Kevin McBride,
    raising his children in a gritty Boston suburb. Kevinʼs body is
    deteriorating, yet he compulsively continues to fight.

    This lyrical film finds a boxer at the end of his career – engaging in
    the Sisyphean task that is his life.

    STAFF RIDING:
    Staff riding, the local slang for train surfing, is a widespread phenomenon in SA. Katlehong is one of the largest townships in South Africa and has played a key role in the history of the struggle against apartheid. The population is almost entirely made up of blacks, but strongly multiethnic: all the eleven South Africa's official languages are spoken in the township.
    The almost total majority of surfers are kids under 25. Amputations and death are really common. The Prasa Metrorail, the SA train company, is one of the foundations of their society.This connection between train and citizens remained very strong over time. The spectacular and risky act of train surfing becomes the framework to tell the Katlehong's young people social fabric.This place has been the epicenter of the anti-apartheid's guerrillas, and on the eve of the twentieth anniversary of the facts that we all know , the situation of segregation has remained more or less unchanged in daily life.
    In a context where violence , rampant poverty , abuse of alchool/drugs and infant birth/AIDS are the masters , the train surfing is configured as the search for a social redemption that will never come for the characters of this story .
    Staff Riding is part of a long-term project about the township lifestyle 20 years later the struggle against apartheid.

  5. A STEREOSCREEN PRODUCTION

    WATCH OUR 60 MIN. AWARD-WINNING DOC HERE: vimeo.com/ondemand/nolimitsfilm

    This is a short, but very intimate portrait of Alex Zanardi, the former Formula 1 driver and winner of the American Champ Car Series. Alex was already a star, when he had his almost fatal accident at the Lausitzring in Germany. He lost his legs, but not his attitude. Alex Zanardi came back and did the impossible: He won races in the World Touring Car Championship, two gold medals at the Paralympics in London 2012 and just recently added two more handbike world titles!

    It was a unique experience to spend a day with a true hero at his house in Padua, talking about his life and joining him for a training session with his handbike. His last words in our film describe him best. But see for yourself...
