  • LA COULEUR DU RING by Valéry Gaillard, producer: EAVE graduate Marion Guth  is in development. The documentary tells a story of blows. A story about bodies. A story of skin colour. America is criss-crossed by a deep, immense, yet almost invisible frontier: the one that separates white from black. This unnamed dividing line determines property prices, unemployment rates and the attitude of police forces; it divides states, parcels out cities and divides neighbourhoods. And it is embodied, perhaps more than anywhere else, in a 5 x 5 metre square of light, circumscribed and highly symbolic.... The boxing ring.
