James Holman explored one of the last places on earth where you cans till flee form the mass tourism:

It’s the the third film I’ve produced over the last 8 years from the former military dictatorship. Our first, Altered Focus: Burma was shot in 2009 (in the PD150 days!) and was featured on both BBC and CNN World News as well as the Washington Post. Our second, Youth of Yangon, was made in 2013 and closely documented, in Burmese language, the growing skateboard community having discovered it in the first film.
Pushing Myanmar was a multi-facetted project, it started when a German non-profit organisation, Make Life Skate Life got in touch about the possibility of building a skatepark there. After a successful crowd-funding campaign in late 2015 raising $20k USD we were able to build the country’s first international standard skatepark. This allowed us to follow what was always a dream following the first two films and make a third and final chapter that documents both the history of skateboarding in the country but also the immense positive change it has had on the community.
The film was shot almost entirely on the Sony A7s2 with only a handful of non-Sony shots being follow-cam on GoPro 4.”
