Pushing Myanmar

"Race, colour, creed age, socio-economic background and age are all irrelevant in a skatepark"

Pushing Myanmar documents the change a free community skatepark has created in Yangon, Myanmar.

Filmed between March 2016 and March 2017 the film is the third in a series that has documented the Myanmar skateboard scene beginning in 2009 with the Award Winning Altered Focus: Burma –  before the Burmese language follow-up Youth of Yangon in 2013.

Skateboarding changes lives, it empowers young (and old) people giving them a creative space to express themselves. It is a scene, a culture and a sport that has no boundaries – race, colour, creed age, socio-economic background and age are all irrelevant in a skatepark. In a country and a city that has a distinct lack of green spaces, providing a free international standard skatepark has had a huge impact on kids getting active and being inspired.

Directed by James Holman.
