About:
A longitudinal portrait of two young boxers in Chicago.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Two young men strive to define their destiny in Chicago’s South Side in this poignant chronicle. Kenny and Destyne dream of boxing greatness, charting very different paths towards their shared goal. Kenny quickly moves into the pressure cooker of semi-pro competitions, while Destyne is imprisoned for a petty crime. Filmed over the course of eight years with incredible access and stirring intimacy, Ringside is a complex, emotional portrait of two youths on the brink.
