Caged movie

CAGED

Directed by Ivan O'Mahoney

'Gritty and compelling...by the end you'll feel like you've been alongside the fighters in the cage.'
- Filmink
'A gripping film...O'Mahoney gains unprecedented access to fighters, their families, coaches and unique footage at major MMA events.' 
- Graeme Blundell, The Weekend Australian
'A surprisingly intimate feel...sometimes quite shocking to watch...
sure to prompt plenty 
of debate.' 
- Claire Ridgen, Daily Telegraph
'Fascinating. The trio of subjects are rounded characters...you will feel every blow.' 
- Sydney Morning Herald

CAGED

SBS Television  |  2020 |  96min

Caged follows a year in the lives of three cage fighters and a coach in Sydney’s Western suburbs and regional NSW. Some carry the hopes of their communities and families on their shoulders; others might have followed a life of crime if not for the discipline of the contest – but all of them are passionate about battling the media’s portrayal of cage-fighting as an ultra-violent free-for-all.
