Tommy Jessop stars as a teenage boxer with Down’s Syndrome, who must fight for his right to enter the ring. Pulled in different directions by his trainer dad and concerned sister, the lad must decide for himself whether the risk is worth the reward.

Directed by Bugsy Riverbank-Steel and written by Guy Bolton, this seven-minute short film was produced through Film London’s BFI NETWORK emerging talent fund, and premiered at the BFI London Film Festival last month.

Beautifully shot and edited, the film conveys the tense emotion of the family drama and the intense impact of the fight scenes with equal aplomb. There’s also a cinematic sense of style to the short, which reflects the titular character’s scrappy aspirations.

Jessop plays the unnamed fighter with conviction and compassion, communicating so much with so few poignant words.

Fighter is a good-looking and deftly balanced short film that should serve the talent on board well as a calling card for a future in feature films.
