GYPSY BLOOD - Gypsy Fighting doc - NOW, C4

273f18e8-8020-4a1d-93d4-ce2380427381_625x352.jpg

Filmed over two years by award-winning photographer Leo Maguire, Gypsy Blood examines the violent culture that some gypsy and traveller fathers hand on to their sons.

The film is an intimate portrait of two gypsy families, their fight for respect and the price they pay in cycles of revenge that can erupt into sudden and terrifying violence.

The Dohertys are Irish Traveller royalty. While Hughie Doherty, 27, becomes embroiled in a fight to defend his family's name, his seven-year-old son Francie is caught between two worlds, learning to read at primary school while learning to fight with his fists at home.

Fred Butcher is Romany but torn between the gypsy fighting tradition and his love as a father. His nine-year-old son, Freddy Cole, is terrified his father will be badly hurt in a fight. The film follows the story of how Fred nearly dies in a machete attack as a day of drinking and sparring goes terribly wrong.

Gypsy Blood is a haunting study of masculinity, violence and the uneasy relationship gypsy and traveller men have with their bare-knuckle traditions, and an insight into people living amongst a wider society but sometimes with values that are a world apart.

wait a sec, did he kill that bloke when he bottled him?

dont think so, not really paying attention properly but think the guy went down after he bottled him then everyone else jumped in on the guy who bottled him. escaped with all the intial injuries, went back and called the guy out again then the sh*t with the machetes happened

fully cannot imagine someone just swinging a machete towards my face, thats madness

are you f*ck*ng dumb?

if they could fight and didn't pick up the knife less people would die and the fights are in a controlled manner, a stabbing isn't.
