Katie Taylor is universally acknowledged as the game-changer who put women’s amateur boxing on the map. She won six amateur European championships, five world amateur championships and an Olympic Gold Medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games. But a devastating year – both personally and professionally – culminated when she failed to defend her Olympic crown with a surprising defeat at Rio 2016.
Katie, is an intimate take on the boxer’s efforts to rebuild her career and her life following that disappointment.
Director Ross Whitaker (Unbreakable: The Mark Pollock Story, Between Land and Sea) gains unprecedented access to the ultra-private Taylor as she turns professional and tries to win a world title again.
World premiere at Galway Film Fleadh 2018
