THE DNA OF GSP is a feature-length documentary I co-directed with Peter Svatek about Georges St-Pierre (aka GSP), reigning UFC welterweight champion, and arguably the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. This gentle warrior grew up in St-Isidore, Quebec. Bullied at school, he learned karate to defend himself and never looked back. He rocketed to the world championship at age 26, only to lose it in his first title defense. GSP fought back and regained his title, but then suffered a potential career-ending knee injury. He clawed his way back again in an epic battle against Carlos Condit. From there, he defeated his long-time rival Nick Diaz, the baddest boy in the UFC, whose psychological war of nerves almost got to GSP. But a truly great champion like GSP can handle it all. GSP’s admiration for the Darwinian force of nature is conveyed in the film by following a lone wolf. The enormous influence of Eastern philosophy on GSP is conveyed by powerful animated sequences. GSP is a true athlete, a master strategist who loves his sport. The film transforms its violence into visual poetry.
