Abstract National games are considered to be an element of a people's history, tradition and life. It is through them that the culture of the people is revealed. There have been many films and documentaries about the national game of Kok Boru. But a documentary about Kok Boru from the world famous streaming company Netflix caught our attention. American streaming service Netflix released the first season of the documentary web series “Home Game” on June 26 in 2020. The series focuses on “a global perspective on traditional and unusual national sports, as well as the communities and cultures in which they exist”. The documentary film tells about eight national games from around the world. One of them is Kok Boru. In the article we discuss the history of Kok Boru and with the help of descriptive method of analysis we try to explore how Netflix reflected the national game Kok Boru and the Kyrgyz people to the world. We analyze in detail the sequential plot of the film and identify the role of traditional sport in the representation of Kyrgyzstan.
