I had the chance to chat with Damian Lee, the Director and Writer of the new feature film A Fighting Man.
A Fighting Man is a brutal, disquieting look at two men who meet head to head in the ring for a fight that will change their lives. The film stars Dominic Purcell (Prison Break), Famke Janssen (X-Men), Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy), James Caan (Misery) and introduces Izaak Smith (So You Think You Can Dance Canada) in his first leading role.
As one man (Purcell) fights for redemption and forgiveness, the other (Smith) fights for change and hope. Intense, fierce and highly dramatic, it’s as much of a character story as it is a boxing movie, and by the end, they realize, whether win or lose, they’ll need each other to make it through.
Damian and I talk about what the message of the film is, what it was like to shoot such a gripping and action packed film, and we also chatted about shooting here in Canada.
