Hands of Stone

Coming Soon
Stories of our people seem to be a theme this year. Venezuelan director Jonathan Jakubowicz tells the story of legendary Panamanian boxer Roberto ‘Manos de Piedra’ Duran and the father-son dynamic his trainer Ray Arcel and how boxing changed both their lives.

Why you should see it: While Duran is best known for his historic fights with Sugar Ray Leonard, which have been covered already; this film goes beyond that chapter of his life and career providing a more in-depth look at Duran as a person and the relationship he built with his trainer. Plus, with Robert De Niro cast as Arcel you can’t lose.
