‘CHINA HEAVYWEIGHT’ – DOCUMENTARY

Another day, another great Sport documentary trailer.

This time, take a look at ‘China Heavyweight’, the new Boxing doc from ‘Up The Yangtze’ director, Yung Chang.

It follows kids from China’s rural peasant towns as they get selected and nurtured toward Olympic greatness by coach Qi Moxiang.

It looks like one hell of a journey, but even in this brief trailer you can see the determination and desire amongst these youngsters to break out from their hometowns and live a life of greater purpose.

After a showing at Sundance in January, the documentary will be released later this year into cinemas.
