Chinlone

Above is the promo for Mystic Ball – the Movie.

Chinlone is hard to define. It’s a team sport without an opposing team, part dance, part meditation. There is no competition, no winners and no losers. The game is back-breakingly difficult, yet is played by almost all Burmese, from young children to octogenarians. – writes Greg Hamilton

In answer to the next question, her name is: Su Su Hlaing

Chinlone is the national sport of Burma/Myanmar, where Mystic ball the movie was filmed. Chinlone festivals, are often played in the grounds of Buddhist temples. This year in Burma, sadly a LOT of Buddhist monks have been killed by the military government. Those monks can be seen in the trailer above, wearing red/orange robes sitting in the audience watching the Chinlone.

Can you guess, who are my current favourite choice for the EJC final show next year?
