Yung Chang, director of the multi-award-winning UP THE YANGTZE (Festival 2008) returns to this year’s Film Festival with a hard-hitting new documentary seemingly timed for this Olympic year, with the memories of the 2008 Beijing Games still fresh in the mind. That Chang observes the rise of boxing academies in rural Sichuan province reflects a telling change in contemporary Chinese society; indeed, sports such as boxing was once banned during Chairman Mao’s reign, and it wasn’t until 1989 that the ban was lifted. Director Chang, working with many of the same personnel he brought with him for his previous film, artfully observes a country in which ideas of struggle, perseverance and social change run side by side, and sometimes even come into conflict.
CHINA HEAVYWEIGHT begins in Sichuan, where Qi Moxiang, a prizefighter turned boxing teacher/coach assists in recruiting middle school students into the art of Western-style boxing. Qi, a professional with over 20 years of experience in the ring, indoctrinates the youths through a very demanding regimen that not only prepare them for an opportunity to represent their hometown in the ring, but also challenges them to think about their philosophy in life and reality itself. Two of Qi’s young charges, Miao Yungfei and He Zongli, strive to be National Boxing Champions of China in their respective weight divisions. Both Miao and He are unequivocally resolute in their mindset towards reaching the pinnacle of their career through professional boxing. However, their parents see no future for their sons in boxing, instead haranguing them to give up their passions and pursue a career and help their families, even as the pull of professionalism weighs heavily on their shoulders. Meanwhile, Qi hopes to make a comeback in a final pro fight at the upcoming Golden Belt Championships as a means of showing his young charges the way. Ultimately, Miao and He face dramatic choices as they graduate: should they fight for the collective good as amateurs or for themselves and their own personal gain as professionals?
Culled from over 200 hours of footage, CHINA HEAVYWEIGHT is much more than a sports story — here, the sports genre serves to tell a larger story of a country that has taken the full plunge into the 21st Century. As director Chang observes, “In China, you fight for your country; but with boxing, the bottom line is that you're fighting for yourself." This story becomes a metaphor for nationalism vs. individualism. But at the heart of the film, it's really about the relationship between Coach Qi and his students. It's a metaphor for the choices that everyone faces now, in the New China.
