China Heavyweight feat. music written by Olivier Alary at Sundance

China Heavyweight  a film featuring a soundtrack written by Olivier Alary (Ensemble) will be at Sundance next year.

The film is about, a Master coach in China recruiting poor rural teenagers and turning them into Western-style boxing champions. The top students face dramatic choices as they graduate -- should they fight for the collective good or for themselves? A metaphor for the choices everyone in the New China faces now.

Sundance describes how it  'artfully captures the playfulness among the trainees, their grueling conditioning, and the guiding principle that athletic achievement is for their country, rather than themselves. Director Yung Chang returns to the Sundance Film Festival (Up the Yangtze screened in 2008) with an intimately observed film that both explores and reflects social change and development in modern China.

Olivier also wrote the music for Yung Chang's previous film a documentary Up The Yangtze, which was nomiated for the Grand Jury Award at Sundance as well as winning a twelve awards at other film festivals.
