The second of three films: Sumo
A deafening roar explodes from the 5,000 crammed into the stadium. Across Japan, millions more sit transfixed in front of their televisions as two scantily-clad men, weighing 25 stone apiece, charge across the earth ring. To the newcomer, sumo often seems ludicrous or repulsive. But Donny MacLeod soons finds himself enthralled by this ancient sport.

starring Asher Brauner

Life on the factory floor is tough for Bobby Rose ; not in the conventional sense but because he's the boss's son. Dad wants him to take over the business, while his workmates resent his presence. Tensions mount when Bobby discovers that carpets are being stolen and a confrontation between workers and management leads to a violent climax. This autobiographically-inspired movie is directed with urgency and sensitivity by its young writer-director.
