Going One Step Further examines community building
When music icon, Stormzy, visits a young boxer, he and Dante talk frankly about the struggles of growing up in South London, and the power that the boxing community has.
In this candid talk between a star of the international rap world and an up-and-coming young boxer, Stormzy offers admiration and advice.
Staying six feet apart, Stormzy asks what Dante is doing to become better, engaging in an easy and uplifting conversation with the young man. The boxing center where Dante practices is at risk, but so are the kids, and so is the community. By staying focused and keeping your head up, Stormzy says, there’s a lot that can be done to keep yourself from falling down.
Charming and candid, Going One Step Further is a positive, uplifting film, showing Black excellence and how mentorship and guidance can impact a person’s future forever. Edited by by Toby Conway-Hughes of Marshall Street Editors, the focus is always on faces and hands, on bodies of power and craft.
