2014《觉》音乐+艺术节-时间安排

Award-winning filmmaker Yung Chang (Up the Yangtze) returns to China for another riveting documentary on the country's ever-changing economic landscape-this time through the lens of sports.

China Heavyweight

In China Heavyweight, Chang follows the charismatic Qi Moxiang, a former boxing star and state coach who recruits young fighting talent from the impoverished farms and villages across Sichuan province. A select few boys (and girls) are sent to national training centers, with the hope of discovering China's next Olympic heroes. But will these potential boxing champions leave it all behind to be the next Mike Tyson? Their rigorous training, teenage trials and family tribulations are expertly intertwined with Coach Qi's own desire to get back in the ring for one more shot at victory. Cinematically rich and intimately observed, China Heavyweight all at once provides a thrilling sports drama, astute social commentary and a beautifully crafted portrait of an athlete.

THIS EVENT IS PART OF ASIAN CINEMA WEEK In 2014 we warmly welcome back Asian Cinema Week into the JUE | Film program. In 2013 Asian Cinema Week was a bold call to cinematic arms. Including feature films, documentaries and shorts from all over Asia (alongside live music, panels and various other interactive events), the inaugural edition carved out a space where local filmmakers and fans alike could collide, share ideas and develop their works. Asian Cinema Week is an outstanding platform for exposing the best of Asian underground cinema.
