Documentary Filmmaker Jill Morley Talks About Her New Film Fight Like a Girl Screening at Phoenix Film Festival

Hopefully your Phoenix Film Festival list of movies to see isn't already full, because you're going to want to add Fight Like a Girl, a film told from a first person perspective about the greatly unknown world of women's boxing.

We talk with the film's director and star, Jill Morley, about why she wanted to get involved with women's boxing, what she learned about herself, and how she used the sport as a catalyst to overcome her inner demons.
