Through this energetic score composed by Adrian Leung, the viewer is taken on a journey to Lagos, Nigeria and introduced to Taye: reigning Dambe boxing champion of his local community. Often known as "Fight Club - Nigerian style," this fiercely competitive sport has been mostly undocumented – until now.

Hong Kong: City On Fire

This urgent film beds in with Hong Kong's pro-democracy demonstrations, offering a front line portrait of four young protesters through a year of struggle. We see their hopes for a freer life and feel their fears as the authorities crack down. Pulse-racing scenes bring the viewer to street level, where peaceful protest is met with fury and tear gas. Clear-eyed about the complications and contradictions that come with a movement that changed Hong Kong forever, it is a brave document of troubled times.

The feature-length film was showcased at cinemas throughout the UK.
