Gwendolyn Leick, the London-based Austrian protagonist of Ruth Kaaserer’s latest film, is in her mid-sixties, barely weighs 52kg and is a three-time world champion in weightlifting. The film documents her return to training following a cancer diagnosis. Rather than rest Gwendolyn fights the cancer lifting heavy weights in an East London gym as she prepares for the European Weightlifting Championships in Azerbaijan.

Austria, 2017, 85min, English, French, Portuguese, Azeri, Turkish with English subtitles, directed by Ruth Kaaserer
