Gypsy Blood | Fighting Documentary | BBC Documentary
An intense and beautifully shot documentary exploring the legacy of violence handed down through generations of gypsy fathers to their sons, told through the poignant stories of two Irish traveller and Romany gypsy families. Award winning photographer Leo Maguire spent three years gaining the trust of the notoriously closed communities, immersing himself in a world where male honour codes remain deeply ingrained. Fathers and sons, raised to prove themselves in bare-knuckle fights, explain their lives in their own words, with the brutal realities portrayed through stunning footage and incredible still photographs.
