Blackfeet Boxing: Not Invisible
Directors: Kristen Lappas, Tom Rinaldi | 29 min | 2019 | United States

*** Contains themes of sexual abuse ***

A boxing gym on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation teaches young girls how to defend themselves in response to the disappearance of Native American girls and women from all over Montana.

The women have either been confirmed as murdered, or their status has remained unknown for the past two years.
Frank Kipp opened the Blackfeet Boxing Club in 2003. Since then, he’s trained more than 500 boxers on the reservation. Its most important fighters are the young women who come in search of more than a heavy bag.

Blackfeet Boxing is a film about fighting—for respect, identity and acknowledgement. There are no scorecards or knockouts. In a state where 73 indigenous women were missing or murdered in the previous two years, the prize at the Blackfeet Boxing Club is far more vital: survival.

WORLD SHORTS presented by Chorus and supported by Shift72
