"You WILL NOT have seen a better documentary this year"
The Times - Review
BARE KNUCKLE FIGHT CLUB
In 2016 Ed directed BARE KNUCKLE FIGHT CLUB (75 min film for C4 and 3x60 series for FX Productions).
This documentary uncovers the hidden and shocking underground world of bare knuckle fighting, with access to a fight club where men from all walks of life square up against each other in bloody battles.
"ED PERKINS' superbly observed and curiously sensitive documentary enlightened me"
"AN ENGROSSING DOC THAT VIEWS IN ITS SUBJECTS UNFLINCHINGLY YET SYMPATHETICALLY "
"This unflinching film about bare knuckle is not for the faint-hearted. But for those who can stomach blood and gore it’s a smart, sensitive examination of a closed world that never talks down to its subjects"
"Now and then a documentary jemmies open a door into a hidden world you had no idea existed. So it is with this superb film that takes us on a visceral journey into the shady sub-culture of bare-knuckle boxing bouts."
