"Like Water" focuses on Anderson Silva's life leading up to his UFC 117 fight
against Chael Sonnen. Silva is the longest-reigning UFC Middleweight Champion
and one of the greatest mixed martial arts fighters of all time. This
behind-the-scenes documentary gives a surprising look at the man behind the
fighter and the dedication and commitment it takes to stay at the top. From
Silva's life in Brazil with his wife, three sons, and two daughters, to
training with his team in Los Angeles, Croce peels back the layers of an
ultimate fighter to reveal the heart of a champion.
"Like Water" premiered at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival where the film won
the "Best New Documentary Director" award for first-time filmmaker Pablo
Croce. Produced by Jared Freedman of Flow With The Go Films.
