Lionel

 

 

Aroview: Absorbing documentary investigating the life of Lionel Rose - the first Aboriginal world champion boxer who challenged Australia's racial perceptions in the 60's after becoming bantamweight champion.

Following his acclaimed debut JISOE, dir. Martin celebrates Rose’s remarkable accomplishments, yet does not shy away from his struggle with consequential fame. Rose comes out a more compelling and likeable figure for this sobering honesty in an otherwise triumphant rags-to-riches story.
