Surrounded by his idols, and clad in gloves and shorts, a man loses himself to his boxing passion… but at what cost?
Awarded Bronze Best Microfilm in October 2018, “Rage” (USA) directed by Seattle-based student filmmaker Myles Ross is streaming now at ISA channel. A powerful 98-second work on boxing passion featuring Johanan (Joe) Gabriel.
“An abandoned idea for a small class project, that emerged into something completely new. With ‘Rage’, I wanted to see if I could create the one thing I think lands at the heart of film; emotion. I may not be able to test my mettle with feelings too complex or incredible, but with this film, there is one single emotion I was trying to capture… Shot in one day, and after a post period of nearly a month plus screenings, I hope I was able to channel a little bit of my own ‘Rage’ into you watching this”, says director Myles Ross.
