Fencing Champion, The

Ruben (10) is one of the best fencers in the club. He has won nearly every title in Denmark, so this season he has to face some of the toughest and most talented fencers in Europe. A lot is a stake for Ruben and he has to find the strength within himself to overcome his anxiety and control his temper if he is to win the big european championship. Ruben's best friend Marie is fencing too, and alongside the drama that is played out on the fencing piste, an even greater story is unfolding about a friendship between a boy and a girl in their early teens - a time when many things change.

The second in a series of six films about children and sports directed by Simon Lereng Wilmont. The first, “Chikara – the Sumo Wrestler’s Son”, premiered at IDFA in 2013.
