In My Corner
POV Season 12
Feature Film | 06/22/1999 | 60 Mins

Filmmaker Ricki Stern delivers a knock-out punch in this portrait of two teenagers seeking refuge and respect in a neighborhood gym in the South Bronx. Fueled by the dream of becoming big-time boxing champs, Joey and José unexpectedly get lessons in life from two surrogate fathers when trainers Angel and Camacho step into their corner. A powerful reminder of how local heroes, wherever they may be found, can shape the lives of young people as they begin sparring with adulthood.
