Jewish Boxers in America
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 18th, 2012: Galileo Productions, LLC continues it’s tradition of award winning films by announcing the continued production of IMPACT: Jewish Boxers in America. The project spearheads over 2 years of research into the topic and profiles current Jewish Boxing greats that include, Dmitry Salita, Cletis Seldin, Ron Lipton and Ed Gersh while also giving viewers insight into many of the great Jewish boxers of the past. GALILEO PRODUCTIONS has spent the past several months shooting principle videography on Long Island and Brooklyn, New York visiting Starrett City Boxing Gym and interviewing many of the athletes. “It is our hope to show and use the Jewish boxer as an example for accomplishing the American dream and proving once again that anyone can succeed in our great nation,” commented James Ford Nussbaum, Executive Producer and Director of the project. The finished film will air on Cablevision Systems in Morris County, NJ airing in over 300,000 homes and possibly be distributed through THE JEWISH CHANNEL on cable pay-per-view. Nussbaum went on to comment, “This is a part of Jewish and national history that many people are unaware of and it is our hopes to give viewers a behind the lens, honest rendition of what it is like to be Jewish and box in the USA. It is our continued hope to stop antisemetic stereotypes through this film and put an end to so much of the hatred that exists right now towards Jews and other minorites. The current economy is just fueling the fire.” GALILEO PRODUCTIONS and James Ford Nussbaum are award winning documentarians noted for winning numerous citations including the Telly Award, Aurora Award, The Davey Award and The Communicator Awards for best overall production in many catagories. Cablevision airs exclusive GALILEO PRODUCTIONS programming every Sunday at 12:30PM on channel 21.
