Too beautiful x Adidas
A feature length documentary directed by Maceo Frost and produced in collaboration with Adidas.
“Too weak. Too old. Too beautiful. Naysayers only fuel Namibia Flores Rodriguez’s need to fight. For decades, she’s trained 5 hours a day – every day – in hopes to one day win an Olympic gold title in boxing. But, in Cuba, boxing is banned for women. Although her native nation boasts more gold medals for boxing than any other country, women aren’t allowed in the ring. Now, aged 39 and just one year shy of the official age cap, Namibia is fighting for her final chance.”
The message of lifting the ban on female boxing and establishing equal rights for female athletes is universal. Worldwide, women are fighting for the right to be represented the way male athletes are. The documentary is an independent film, with Adidas on board to back the film financially and with impact marketing
