China Heavyweight |
From the director of Up the Yangtze comes China Heavyweight, which uses the burgeoning sport of Western-style boxing to explore China’s ongoing social upheaval.
The film offers an intimate portrait of former boxing star-turned coach Qi Moxiang, who recruits young fighters from the impoverished villages and farms of rural China in hopes of discovering the next Olympic star. (89 mins., 35mm)
