Pride of Bukom

 

 

French director Alexis Rossi follows boxer and fisherman Nii Armarh Tetteh on his quest to become Ghana’s pugilistic pride. Bukom, the sleepy fishing town where Tetteh lives and works, has been forged by the culture of boxing, and by the legacy of the many champions who have come from this disadvantaged area. “Despite its deprived background,” explains Paris-based Rossi, “the town has produced five world boxing champions since the 1960s.” Tetteh, as a contender, is driven to become the next great victor, Rossi continues: “He is an ordinary fisherman who is also pursuing an extraordinary dream.”
