TFF 2020 Short Film
Film Review of Directors Ugonna Okpalaoka’s & Nadine Natour’s GLOVES OFF

A visual and sonic feast of an eloquently told story about Tiara Brown, a Washington D.C. police officer who is also a gifted amateur boxer training to become a world class champion. There are lots of gritty, eloquent lines in this movie. This is one. Tiara Brown: “I would always bring back gold medals. Yet, when it came time to being interviewed or being on the front of the magazine, it would always be be the pretty long, tall blonde who would get chosen. The black girls weren’t being treated the same way the other girls were being treated. After going through that for years, I quit the team.” – #YouGottaSeeThisMovie
