Yesterday a teaser trailer for the documentary “Tapia” was released. The film will make its world premier June 15th at the LA Film Festival in Los Angeles, California.
Before the fighter’s tragic death last year at the age of 45, director Eddie Alcazar spent time with Tapia researching a biopic. What would become his last interviews are now the beating heart of Alcazar’s gripping, elegiac documentary. In it, the bedeviled, soft-spoken champion opens up about the severe ups and downs of a life in which the strategic ferocity of the ring may have been the only true sanctuary for a soul routinely beaten down outside the ropes. – YouTube Description
