  1. Can someone answer this because I need to know for my school work.
    what is the main purpose that this video was made?
    how did the film begin and end-was it effective?

  2. I remember being a kid and my only problem being someone cut my kite, it was bliss and addictive just like how technology is addictive in the west, now I'm the only kite flyer here in Canada and I'm hoping to get my community kids involved into this fun sport

  3. Sh!t. I just realized that kite fighting is not only played in Indonesia, the other 3rd world countries do the same. So why there's no international kite fighting and kite chasing competition? It will unite 3rd world boys around the world.

  4. Actual critique: I think this video was an accurate shoeing of kite fighting using several locals for interviews and was nicely filmed but at times i felt it wwas trying to hard to be a deep philosophical video when its just a video about flying kites
