Ready? And ... here's the poster and trailer for The Cheer Ambassadors

Among the homegrown entries in the World Film Festival of Bangkok, I'd think you'd be hard-pressed to find a more enthusiastic bunch than the people behind The Cheer Ambassadors.

The documentary about the Thai National Cheerleading Team is the story of one young Thai man who saw the so-called "Cheerleading Olympics", the World Cheerleading Championships on ESPN and then had a dream of a Thai team carrying their flag to compete. So he rallied his friends and they formed a team, building it from scratch as they watched YouTube performances of American cheerleaders and struggled to safely learn the sport in late-night practices on hard concrete floors without benefit of mats.

Directed by Luke Cassady-Dorion and Jason W. Best, the documentary focuses on five key team members, the coaches and the team fortuneteller.

There's a trailer screaming online, embedded below.

The Cheer Ambassadors makes its world premiere at 6pm on Friday, January 27 at the World Film Festival of Bangkok at the Esplanade Ratchadaphisek.
