Coming soon! Naomi's film 'Never Be A Punching Bag For Nobody'

Back in November, while browsing around I came across the trailer for Never Be A Punching Bag For Nobody on Vimeo and assumed it was something that had slipped past me, and posted it on this website - today Naomi officially announced the film and shared the trailer, so I guess I rather jumped the gun with this one (sorry Naomi!).

Never Be a Punching Bag for Nobody (trailer, dir: Naomi Yang)

There is now a page on Naomivision with more information about the film and informing us that it will be Coming soon in 2023 - so… watch the trailer and sit tight for more details.

The film weaves together three stories: colorful boxing coach and ex-drill sergeant Sal Bartolo Jr., son of a renowned 1940s East Boston boxing champ; Yang herself, learning boxing from trainer Bartolo and reexamining some of her own family’s disturbing history; and schoolteacher Mary Ellen Welch, who in the 1960s mobilized a group of neighborhood women against encroachment from Logan airport, fighting back against an indifferent city government.
