Directed by Ross Whitaker (Unbreakable: The Mark Pollock Story, Anthony Foley: Munsterman), KATIE follows champion boxer Katie Taylor as she attempts to rebuild her career after a year of turmoil threatened to derail it.
Katie Taylor won five world amateur championships and an Olympic Gold Medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games. She turned professional after a disastrous campaign at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which saw her crash out in the first round despite being favourite to win. The film unravels the deeply personal reasons behind the career low and shows the champion’s grit and determination to start over as a professional.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with award-winning director Ross Whitaker.
