IN THE BLOOD
is a dance film which features the theatrical platform of a boxing ring
and the intense movement of fighting. Producer/Director Jodi Kaplan
exposes the brute physicality of a sport which pushes participants to
their utmost limits, to the edges of physical force- one that, through
its severity, captures the inexplicable will to live.
Shot on location at the world-famous Gleason's Gym.
Starring pro boxers John Duddy and James Moore.
Release slated for 2016.
Featuring a collaboration with world-renowned dance photographer Lois Greenfield, whose stills from the production will be incorporated into the film.

Jodi Kaplan received a New York City Media Arts grant from the Jerome Foundation in support of In The Blood.
