— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

A Noble Art: Port Magazine x Boxing Gym.

FITZROY LODGE from PORT on Vimeo.

A hypnotic piece of work to start your working week. This collaboration between Mother, PORT Magazine & the Director Anthony Austin is a visually stunning and emotionally engaging ode to The Fitzroy Lodge. One of London’s oldest, and most beloved Boxing Clubs, situated on the Lambeth Road in South London. Centered around the story of Mick Carney MBE, the founder of the club, (who died last year), we see and hear what Boxing means to both young and old at the Lodge. Their melancholic, emotionally powerful words are matched perfectly with an atmospheric art direction, each element perfectly surmising why places such as The Fitzroy Lodge are such crucial and vital sanctuaries for generations of people. This dedication and humbleness is more often than not over-shadowed by the glitz of big time boxing, but here, soundtracked by a perfectly selected piece from Alexandre Desplat, we are treated to a look inside the other, more noble side of the art.
