Shuttle by filmmaker Rob Hardcastle is an observational documentary
about the culture of Badminton in Malaysia, particularly amongst the
Chinese community there.

Whilst being fairly under exposed in the West, badminton is huge in
the Far East, and is in fact Malaysia’s national sport.

This documentary tries to capture some of the passion for the sport,
the way that it has evolved into a super fast and strategic game and
how it is deeply ingrained within the culture. It includes interviews
with legends of the sport Wong Choong Hann and Lee Wan Wah.
