All this week, we're spotlighting four films that will be in the running
for our Camden International Film Festival Project of the Week
contest. At the end of the week, we'll have a vote for the project that
you like the most. That project will get to pitch their project at the
CIFF Points North Pitch, where a world-class panel will give feedback
on their projects and award one pitch project $1,000. The
Indiewire/CIFF Project of the Week winner will receive free lodging in
Maine and a travel stipend!
In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.
"Whatever Happened to Tyrell Biggs?"
How does the first-ever Super Heavyweight
Olympic Gold Medalist find himself doing janitorial work in a West
Philadelphia gym? With an Olympic gold medal and a new motto, "Realize
your Potential," Tyrell Biggs seemed poised to become a boxing legend.
Then something happened. Whatever Happened to Tyrell Biggs? provides a
fascinating look at a life drawn straight from Shakespearean tragedy –
the story of one man’s fall from worldwide recognition and acclaim into
the depths of addiction and despair. In living in that territory in
between, Biggs confronts, though on a grander scale, the struggle that
lives within us all.
