Critically-acclaimed documentary ‘Katie’ now available on DVD

The critically-acclaimed and award-winning Katie Taylor documentary, Katie, directed by Ross Whitaker (Unbreakable: The Mark Pollock Story) has been released on DVD, online and in stores nationwide. 

The DVD is now available to purchase in Golden Discs, Tesco, Lidl, SuperValu, IFI, Tower Records, Easons, OMG, Dealz, and other selected independents, as well as on Ebuzz.ie. 

Katie, which has been wowing audiences since it picked up the Best Irish Feature Documentary award at the Galway Film Fleadh earlier this year, intimately follows champion boxer, Katie Taylor, as she attempts to rebuild her career, after a year of turmoil.

With many writing her off, Taylor decided to start again, and the notoriously private champion agreed to let a small crew document her attempt to rescale the heights.

Katie Taylor has won six amateur European championships, five world amateur championships, and is an Olympic Gold Medal winner from the London 2012 Olympic Games.  She turned professional after a disastrous campaign at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which saw her crash out in the first round, despite being favourite to win.  The film unravels the deeply personal reasons behind the career low, and shows the champion’s grit and determination to start over as a professional. Katie won her first world title within a year, and became the first woman in history to headline her own Sky Sports show.

The feature documentary is produced by Ross Whitaker and Aideen O’Sullivan (When Ali Came To Ireland) for True Films and Venom, with Andrew Freedman (His & Hers, Mom and Me) as Executive Producer, funding from Screen Ireland, RTE, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and Wildcard Distribution.

Katie is available on DVD in stores and online Now!.
