Default Kidult: The boys who fought for Castro

Documentary on BBC2 just now, missed most of it but seems bloody good. It follows 3 boys for 8 months as they prepare for the Cuban under-12s National Boxing Championships. Horribly cruel, but some of the kids seen to have very good abilities and unreal conditioning for their ages. A lot of pressure and guilt tripping going on, repeated tommorow night at 5 to 1am (Friday)

Same thing

Since this is the BBC version, its only an hour. Get yourselves: Sons of Cuba, this the full-length version and better for it. A great documentary.
