Mensagem do Realizador Director Statement
Iceland holds contrasts and peculiarities typical of a land isolated by the sea. One of these concerns boxing: considered a controversial and dangerous sport, it was banned until 2002. However, today the Icelandic boxing community boasts 3 major clubs (in a country of 340,000 inhabitants), with athletes of all levels and ages. In particular, young people (both boys and girls) are the ones who show the most interest in a sport that is more than just a bunch of punches. And this is precisely what Round 0 wants to depict: a portrait of young personalities who approach boxing during the fragile moment of transition from youth to adulthood. Considering the reality-based background of the story, I decided to involve in the cast both professional actors (like Throstur Leo Gunnarsson) and young boxers/non-actors, in order to give a certain authenticity to the characters, who were also an inspiration to the story itself. The project is shot in the gym where the non-actors themselves train in real life and where I personally spent some time, in order to approach their world and create a story that could describe it in a pure way, far from any judgments or certain truths.
