Filmmaker Yung Chang (IFC Center hit Up the Yangtze) returns with another eye-opening look at contemporary China. In the country’s rural southwest, state boxing coaches recruit talented adolescents for the nation’s next Olympic team. But in the new China, the honor of fighting for their country as amateurs faces tough competition from the personal rewards of turning pro.
