We are delighted to announce new commission "Counterpunch" for an upcoming series on Al Jazeera's "Witness" strand. Women at a boxing gym founded by Moroccan migrants punch above their weight as they counter narratives that their Brussels neighbourhood is one of Europe's breeding grounds for Islamic radicalisation.

The film will be directed by Disobedient's Leah Borromeo, with an exclusively female crew and mostly female cast.
