Congratulations to Professor Elena Rossi-Snook on Receiving a Grant from TFF

Professor Rossi-Snook, on behalf of The New York Public Library, received a $95,520 grant from The Film Foundation (TFF), with funding from the Hobson/Lucas Family Foundation (HLFF), in support of the restoration of William Greaves’ film The Fight (1974). She will be partnering with The Criterion Collection on the project; upon completion, the work will be available on film and video at NYPL and distributed digitally by Criterion. The Fight is the definitive feature-length documentary on Muhammad Ali’s boxing match with Joe Frazier at Madison Square Garden in 1971, also known as the Fight of the Century.
