Boxing is one sport that has produced some outstanding indigenous talent such as Lionel Rose, Tony Mundine and George Bracken. One of the ways indigenous boxers were discovered was through a series of tent boxing circuses that once travelled the country.
Directed by Michael Riley, Tent Boxers tells the story of Aboriginal involvement in these tent-boxing circuses. It combines first person accounts of tent boxing life with rich archival material of the time.
