Unlike any other sports film you’ve seen before, Small, Slow But Steady is the tender and meditative adaptation of Keiko Ogasawara’s memoir. Filmed on tactile 16mm, the film follows Keiko (Yukino Kishii), a Deaf amateur boxer, as she trains for her upcoming fights in Tokyo.
But with the impact of the pandemic threatening the closure of her local club and her mentor coping with a serious illness, Keiko is rocked by the uncertainty of losing her beloved community and devoted father-figure.
Can she recover her determination to forge her own path in a world indifferent to deafness?
