Synopsis

Sometimes a boxing match is just a game. Other times, the sport takes on a far greater significance. One of those moments happened in the 1930s when two boxing matches between American Joe Louis and German, Max Schmeling not only came to symbolise the struggle between democracy and fascism, but also created the US's first nationally-recognised African American hero. This thoughtful film tells the unlikely story of how a friendship eventually grew between those two very different men.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
