Knock out by Hans H Zerlett( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Boxing champion Michele Aboro grew up in South London, where life for a girl was never easy, let alone for a mixed-race lesbian girl. Thanks to her tenacious spirit and an uncanny talent for combat sports, she put her difficult past behind her and managed to sign a contract with the biggest boxing promoter in Europe. She won all 21 fights, 18 of them with a knockout--an exceptional achievement in women's boxing. But despite her spectacular record in the ring, her career came to a sudden halt when her promoter breaks her contract under the belief that she was not 'promotable.' Refusing to vamp up her image and pose naked in magazines, this undefeated world champion was abandoned by an industry more interested in selling sex than sport. [The film] interweaves Aboro's personal story with interviews with boxers whose wild success strikes a painful contrast with Aboro's struggles. Searching for logic behind Aboro's case, this poignant documentary captures a universal story of fighting for one's identity and offers a probing look at the intersection of gender, ethnicity, sexuality and the increased commercialization of women's sports"--Www.wmm.com

South Africa has produced more than its share of distinctive and influential musical genres. The 1990s style known as kwaito was that nation's first major post-Apartheid musical movement, and while it drew from American hip-hop and American and European electronic dance music, this was a powerfully South African sound and cultural force. Several stars of kwaito speak of its origins, originators and the conflict between its joyful syncretism and its township immediacy
