Masked Rituals

Two boxers fight to exhaustion, navigating the lines between violence and intimacy.

The fighters engage in training, and rituals of protection before facing off in a fight. The commentary in the background starts off narrating the fight before shifting into generated text on capitalist masculinity, and finally melting into a lush soundtrack, as the fighters start collapsing.
