In China Heavyweight, a Chinese Master boxing coach recruits poor rural teenagers, fills them with Olympic dreams, and turns them into amateur champions. Chinese and U.S. promoters see China as pro-boxing’s last frontier, so the boxers must choose to fight for their nation or themselves.
A Q&A with filmmaker Yung Chang will follow the free screening.
