Watch: Sundance Winner Doc 'Cutie and the Boxer' Plumbs Troubled Marriage of Japanese Artist Ushio Shinohara

The official trailer for the documentary “Cutie and the Boxer,” which received raves at Sundance where it won the documentary directing award, has arrived. A chronicle of Japanese artist Ushio Shinohara’s chaotic 40-year marriage to his wife and assistant Noriko, the film is directed by Zachary Heinzerling.

The now 80-year-old painter arrived in the New York art scene in the 1960s, and is known for his signature use of boxing gloves rather than a brush to create exuberantly colorful murals. In a Sundance review, Eric Kohn of Indiewire calls the film a “beautifully shot, painfully intimate look at the aging couple’s struggle to survive amid personal and financial strain [that] is both heartbreaking and intricately profound.” Check out Indiewire’s interview with the director here.

RADiUS-TWC acquired North American and French rights to “Cutie and the Boxer” at Sundance. The film hits theaters August 16th.
