A Man’s Story follows young Kam after a triggering boxing practice that forces him to confront his family’s abusive past and present.


Fernando Arrioja is a Toronto-based filmmaker raised in Mexico. He graduated from the 2014 Director’s Lab at the Canadian Film Centre where he developed his feature screenplay THE NEARBY. His recent short film A MAN’S STORY won the impact short film award at the Reelworld Film Festival. As a visual storyteller he thrives creating personal compelling films that transcend boundaries. His fascination for storytelling began at an early age following his instinct of capturing the stories of those around him with stills; always seeing a picture as the possible first frame of a movie.
