I am producing & presenting a fresh, minty, fly-on-the-wall doc for RTHK about the Sport of Kings. Polo is one of the oldest, fastest and most dangerous team sports on earth. It is seen as epitomizing an exclusive, elite world drenched in luxury and privilege. But how Ralph Lauren is it really? And whose bright idea was it to put a hole in the middle??
Polo Field of Dreams charts the meteoric rise of the Hong Kong Polo Team. Once ridiculed as underdogs, the team are now experiencing success in Asia and internationally and looking for a permanent home: their very own Polo Field of Dreams in the heart of Hong Kong.
I go behind the scenes at some of polo’s most (and least!) glamorous events to tell the rags to riches story of how a team with no home and no horses are defeating overwhelming odds to triumph and reignite passion for the Sport of Kings in Asia.
The documentary hones in on the ragtag team’s eccentric personalities, exploring their lives on and off the polo field, and features interviews with several of the world’s best polo players.
Like the mint, so cool and so fresh, with a toothpaste aftertaste…
