A searing short about Alan Duarte, born in a violent and neglected favela community in Rio de Janeiro, who dreams of finding salvation and building a better future for his son and his community through his boxing project.
The jury sings the film's praises: “An unflinching portrait of finding hope in a world of danger; a journey of perseverance in the face of tragedy; an uplifting and visually compelling story of redemption. The winner of the Best Documentary Short is The Good Fight.”
