PUPS, short film from Nuria Aguado Roig

PUPS is a documentary based on Javier García Roche, a boxer and owner of a junkyard, who works with young men of impoverished neighborhoods in Barcelona to help them overcome their struggles through boxing. Although he is looked down upon because of his unorthodox behavior, he's the 6th best boxer in Spain and has over 120.000 fans, far more than any boxer in the country. This project has taken over two years and ended up being not only a piece of the personal journey of a man who is constantly fighting but also the subtle image of a society where people in the same situation are virtually invisible. Thus real courage is: when you know you don't have a chance, but you pursue your goal no matter what.
