Plant-based documentary The Game Changers* has made its debut into the Chinese market.

The film, which ‘documents the explosive rise of plant-based eating in professional sports’, is now available on major streaming service Youku – otherwise known as ‘YouTube of China’.

According to tech site Top Digital, in 2018, Youku had 580 million registered users and an average of 36.9 million daily active users.

‘A fantastic movie’

Last month, a host of leading doctors including Dr Michael Greger and Dr Neal Barnard reviewed The Game Changers in an exclusive interview with Plant Based News.

“The Game Changers really, in an inspiring way, reaches a whole new audience. And these are people who didn’t want to just lose weight, or lower their cholesterol,” Dr Barnard told Plant Based News.

“These are people who wanted to perform in sports at the highest possible level. And they brought it home, I have to say. It’s a fantastic movie.”
