Chris Howell is the writer, director and cinematographer of Sweet Science — as well as its prime fundraiser. During the course of his seven years following Coach Greg Hatley and the Oak Cliff Boxing Club, Howell became a certified boxing coach himself — talk about immersing yourself in your work — and found his documentary subjects taking turns he never expected. Including criminal convictions, financial setbacks and even death.
Sweet Science screens at the Dallas International Film Festival Monday and Thursday this week at the Angelika.
