An interview with Colombian director Rafael Martínez Moreno, director of The Missed Round, presented in the International Panorama section of the 2019 Cairo International Film Festival. The film takes place among the lower classes and in the modern day boxing world of Cartagena, which was once a boxing capital of the world. Martínez Moreno talks about his choice of using non-actors and meeting the real life boxer who plays the role of the protagonist – El Piedra.

The Missed Round: A man and a child try to sort each other’s emotional behaviour and attitude towards life. The man is a boxer whose past is behind him and the child has an unknown future but he decides to make his own through a childish adventure that each of them needs to go through till the end.
