Light Fly, Fly High

.

“Light Fly, Fly High” tells the striking story of a courageous girl trying to change her life. Thulasi is a young Indian girl, who is literally willing to fight for the right to be herself. Being an ‘untouchable’, born outside caste, she’s expected to accept her position at the very bottom of the social ladder. Using a government program that offers jobs to young athletes, she is trying to fight her way to the top in the ring. Although she is one of the best boxers on her team, there are more obstacles to overcome than just the championship.

  • How it Started

    How it started

    The inspiration for “Light Fly, Fly High” came as early as 2005. A photo article by Danish Miriam Dalsgaard about female boxers in India made us curious. Who were these girls? And what made them choose such a non-traditional and male-dominated sport? We felt there had to be some strong stories behind their choices.

    In January 2010 we went to India to seek answers to some of our many questions. We met several girls during our trip, but when Thulasi came walking towards us that morning at Nehru Stadium, we realized that we had found our main character. There was something about her that made her stand out in a crowd of youngsters. There is something about Thulasi that makes you not want to take your eyes off her. At that very moment we knew that this was only the beginning of a long journey.

    After four years, six trips and nearly five months in India, the film about Thulasi is ready to meet its audience. Thulasi is our heroine, and we hope that the story of her struggle, both inside and outside the ring, can inspire others to find courage to be different and fight for the right to be themselves.
