Clinch is an experimental short film, in which we are exploring the subconscious feelings of the boxer Mo.
Mo and his training partner are having an intense boxing match, when they get into a clinch for a moment and pause. Suddenly we see everything in slow motion which makes the movements seem soft and almost tender. What happens inside of Mo is now shown in an abstract way. Colours, movement and sound are merging into an idea of the subconscious desire for love and tenderness of Mo. When Mo realizes his feelings he starts raging against his partner until his opponent stops the match. Mo is now sitting in the corner of the ring, feeling confused and exhausted.
