FIGHTVILLE

USA/English (85 mins)

WESTERN CANADA PREMIERE! Mixed Martial Arts has grown from a controversial no-holds-barred gladiatorial sideshow into a billion dollar phenomenon eclipsing boxing as the dominant combat sport in the world. But far from Las Vegas, in sweat-soaked gyms and low-rent arenas across America, the big lights are but a dream. Here, men fight to test their mettle, fortified with the mythic promise that an ordinary man can transform into a champion.

Fightville is about the art and sport of fighting: a microcosm of life, a physical manifestation of that other brutal contest called the American Dream. This pulse-pounding documentary follows a number of up-and-coming fighters (including star-in-the-making, Dustin Poirier) as they attempt to turn small-town dreams into major-league reality.
