Mystic Ball - Film Screening Benefit for Myanmar

'MYSTIC BALL' is the multi award-winning film by Canadian Greg Hamilton, now being offered by him to raise funds for the people of Myanmar. Woodward Room in Begbie Hall, Fort & Richmond, Royal Jubilee Hospital Campus, Victoria BC.
Admission by donation, please be generous! And please invite your friends!

Here's a great opportunity to view the beautiful and inspiring film, 'Mystic Ball', while helping to raise desperately needed funds for the people of Myanmar, that will be delivered directly to them by the film's director, Canadian Greg Hamilton. (Hamilton will be 'joining in' via phone to answer questions.)

Following his passion for chinlone, a non-competitive game played with a rattan ball by virtually everyone in Myanmar, Hamilton has visited the country 18 times over the past couple of decades, developing deep bonds of love, community and family, along with his skills in the game.

Because of this he is now uniquely and fortuitously positioned to be able to deliver desperately needed assistance straight into the community, bypassing the deadly constraints of the military regime. Greg will return to Myanmar in early summer and is meanwhile offering his multi award-winning film for benefit screenings in various Canadian cities.

'Mystic Ball' presents a rare look deep into a beautiful and little-known culture. In the words of Hamilton, "Chinlone is a different paradigm, a different way of playing a game. The goal in chinlone is to create beauty and become one as a team. Though it is not competitive in the usual sense of "us against them", to play chinlone well is astoundingly difficult. Rather than creating more competition, chinlone celebrates the spirit of cooperation. "

In addition, the film is an inspiring story of the power and mystery of following our hearts' callings.
