Kickboxing and life

Documentary

This film takes a look at the life of several young (and not so young) men from a number of Lille’s working-class neighbourhoods from the perspective of the closed and highly regimented world of the Panther’s Club, a club devoted to kickboxing.

It looks at the daily life and dreams of a certain number of youth, those of working-class neighbourhoods, whose main challenge is dealing with generalized job precarity and tenuous social relations.
