Koza

Ivan Ostrochovský • 2015 • Slovakia-Czech Republic

Koza dramatizes a retired boxer's journey back into the ring.

Koza is a retired boxer who needs cash for his girlfriend’s abortion. He’d rather keep the child, but they can’t afford it. He thus embarks on a road-trip for which he is hilariously ill-equipped—his boxing matches become more and more punishing, his chances of success more bleak by the day.

Ivan Ostrochovský’s hybrid narrative-documentary steeps in the impoverished landscape of his characters’ lives, uncovering pockets of black humor that qualify Koza as both an authentic and endearing work.
