It's teenage girls boxing in Reno. Cool, right? But it's also the inner workings of a girl's brain: her past, her future, her present of hitting another girl not too different from her in the stomach. Bullwinkel reminds us so simply and so vividly what it is to be a teenager with thick skin and an audience of twelve at such a specific yet fleeting time in your life. This was expansive yet relatable in the witnessing of girlhood, in the violence and in the quiet. Punch to the gut, punch to the heart.
