Makepung: The Story of a Balinese Buffalo Racer

Bali Culture

In Jembrana, west Bali, the tradition of buffalo racing known as Makepung is a sporting contest unlike any other. For jockeys, it’s more than a race, it's a way to connect with one’s ancestors, gain respect from the community, and to pass on culture to the next generation. A film by @markorandelovic.
