We are excited to announce a new collaboration with Farpoint Productions in a new planned documentary called Masters of Mahjong. The project is in the development stage and currently looking for funding. The feature-length documentary will follow the trials and tribulations of riichi mahjong players as they prepare for WRC 2017 Las Vegas, and their triumph or disappointment at the event itself.
Jamie Grant of Farpoint Productions traveled to Japan at the beginning of this year to shoot some concept footage for the trailer, and we all spent a very exciting day at the Japan Professional Mahjong League's studio. We highly recommend you check out the video and follow Masters of Mahjong on social media.
The World Riichi Championship is excited and honored to be a part of their plans. We hope that the rest of the riichi community will offer any support they can for the success of this project.
