Emmy award winning filmmaker Allan Luebke and producer Josh Leake followed Avila for two years as she was juggling her life as a mom and an undefeated amateur fighter. Originally title “Fight Dreams”, “Glena” was one of the few to make it to the festival, as more than 8000 featured documentaries vied for spots.
