The Cage Fighter documentary

Sundance Selects has acquired the US rights to Jeff Unay’s documentary and directorial feature debut THE CAGE FIGHTER.

The mixed martial arts film premiered in April at the San Francisco International Film Festival as one of the five movies in its new Launch section and selected with the intention of helping the titles find distribution.

Unay directs from a script he wrote. James Orara produce, with Andrea Meditch executive producing.

The documentary focuses on Joe Carman, a blue-collar Washington State boilermaker and master plumber, a loving father and husband who is unable to cope with stresses at home and an ongoing custody battle. He escapes back into the fighting cage to heal himself and come to terms with his past.

Arianna Bocco, Executive Vice President of Acquisitions and Productions at Sundance Selects said:

“Jeff Unay’s impressive and beautiful debut unfolds like a narrative film in which the story of Joe Carman and his journey is portrayed with empathy and universal accessibility. We can’t wait to share his story with audiences across the world.”
