[Movie News] Fist & Faith 青禾男高 hits theaters this July

The coming-of-age film Fist & Faith (青禾男高) will be hitting theaters on July 14th. Leading the campus pack of boys is Oho Ou, and his gang of “brothers” includes Zhang Ningjiang, Zhou You, Ding Guansen, and Yin Fang. Female lead Jing Tian plays a teachers and newbie actress Xia En is Oho Ou’s younger sister in the movie. From what I read on douban (the Chinese equivalent of IMDb), it sounds like the story takes place after the Japanese invasion of Manchuria, where a teacher and a group of students establish a study club to preserve their language and culture as an act of protest against the foreign invaders. So, it is a little different from the usual campus youth movies and dramas that’s so popular these days, which is good cause I can’t tell most of them apart anymore! lol
