“Story of becoming” is a documentary of girl meets kickboxing, but you should know from the start that this is not a sport story.
The girl, Kat, grew up in a family of other 9 siblings in Hungary and started out practicing kickboxing, after her mom was advised that it might be a good idea to channel the girl’s extra energy into something constructive. The girl grew up believing that one “is” not a person, but that one becomes a person. So, whichever challenges or hardships will come up during the “becoming” journey, one should have faith in himself. The girl will later achieve 3 times the title of World Champion in WKU Amateur Kickboxing.
However, Kat's story is not a story of the spotlight, of the multiple won titles. It is rather a story of being knocked down emotionally, of going really down into the inner darkness abyss to be able to resurface stronger to the light. It is a success story, but not against a fierce opponent; it is a story of winning against one's own mental barriers.
Kat’s story is a story of humanity, a story which others can connect with. It transcends the journey of just one person to become the story of the contemporary individual, who aspires to become a better person for herself and for those around her.

“Story of Becoming” is a Gaffa Media production, directed by Klaus Bjarner Pedersen. The documentary was shot on a BlackMagic Design URSA MINI 4K and 4.6K using Canon L-glass and Angenieux Optimo Style zooms, powered by Anton Bauer batteries.
