Elderly people in Myanmar playing Chinlone

Filmed in Nyaung U in the valley of Bagan. It´s amazing when you watch those old guys playing. If you´ve ever tried to play this game you know how hard this is.

Chinlone also known as caneball is the traditional sport of Myanmar (Burma). Chinlone is a combination of sport and dance, a team sport with no opposing team. In essence chinlone is non-competitive. The focus is not on winning or losing, but how beautifully one plays the game.
