Six Rounds + Kingsland (Short)

As the 2011 London riots unfurl, a former boxer has to choose between his past and his future in Six Rounds, Marcus Flemmings’ bold and stylish second feature. Stally is a former fighter who stepped out of the ring while he was still unbeaten. Having fallen in love and gotten a regular job, he feels like he’s moving towards something positive. But when an acquaintance from his past asks him for a favour, he finds himself trapped in a corner, from which he’ll need to fight his way out, in a tense and emotive tale of race, love and redemption in the midst of spiking social tension.

Dir: Jake Gabbay
