There are 50 million skateboarders world wide. There are 15 in Myanmar. Find out why.
Youth of Yangon is the story of a small group of skateboarders in Yangon, Myanmar. It shows a young and emerging youth culture participating in an activity they love in a country with a distinct lack of facilities and equipment. It is far more than a skateboard film in a rapidly changing country.
Youth of Yangon was filmed 4 years after Altered Focus: Burma and released December 23rd 2013.
