A co-production feature documentary by UK-China Film Collab, with a working title as THE QUEENS OF 147 begins shooting in both the UK and China.

Snooker, a sport originated in Britain traveled to China via Hong Kong in the 1980s. It has now become one of the most popular entertainments and sports in China attracting millions of fans. In recent years, more and more young women have taken up the sport internationally, but there is also a hidden underground scene rising that is unknown by many…

This documentary wishes to bring that to the public’s attention. Our documentary however will focus more on women players and their perspectives on the sport.

Here is an interview with Ding Junhui, China’s most renowned player by EUROSPORT as a background information to the documentary.
