Directed by Michael Kirch, 2012 Fleur du Cap nominee as Best New Director for ‘Bench’ by Brent Palmer.

Featuring Rowan Studti as Ralph Travis (Trav), and Dylan Skews as Jack Foster (Jackie).

Travis, an up-and-coming boxer on the verge of the big time, prepares for battle in the fight that could make his life-long dreams a reality. Jackie, his friend and coach, psyches him into fitness with grand illusions of a world of endless bodily pleasures and material spoils.

Travis’zealous drive for power and glory leads to questionable conduct in the boxing ring. Although Jackie has little regard for the rules of the game, and is only concerned with winning, he is faced with a serious blow to his conscience: How far is too far?

Grappling with the subject of masculinity, male identity, sexuality, the function of violence and the boundaries of male friendship, they are forced to confront these issues in the confines of a locker room.

What is the prize for being a real man?

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
