Split Decision
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Marcy Garriott


This powerful documentary tells the story of boxer Jesus "El Matador" Chavez, who was well on his way to become a championship fighter before extenuating circumstances halted his career. Based on a prior criminal conviction, Chavez was deported to Mexico, the land of his birth. As Jesus struggles to return to his new life in America, he must come to terms with the country where he was born. Marcy Garriott's film is a complex, entertaining portrait of a conflicted man who is under an unbearable amount of pressure.
