Synopsis

This 6-part documentary introduces the intensely competitive world of the sport fencer & the elegant traditional moves of the classical duelist. “Fencing” takes you inside bouts at fencing academies in the USA and fencing clubs in London, where fencers reveal what it’s like to outwit an opponent.

Through exciting close-ups, fast moving action of dueling weapons is captured with a clarity rarely seen on TV or in movies. Slow motion let you see that magic moment of a “hit” or a “near miss.” Performed for this film is a musical re-enactment of a baroque fencing bout in period costume.

...stunning & visually elegant, and presenting the heart of the issues.
Beautifully represented the essential identity of classical and modern fencing."
Steve Khinoy, Coach, Staten Island Fencing Club,NY

“Contrasts the traditions of fencing with the modern game. Experts around the world illustrate how this elegant sport appeals to both young and old alike."Michael Cusack, Annandale, NJ
