Youth Of Yangon
Thailand, New Zealand, 2012, 13 minutes Documentary, Sport
This, for me, is a perfect little documentary.  It is lyrical, personal and perfectly one-sided.  It focusses on the skate boarders. their lives and what they have to say.  Then it invokes the voices of surprising supporters.  I know nothing of Myanmar, but this film evokes a really strong sense of place and time.  The sense of time relates not only to the lives of the young skateboarders but also to the evolution of Myanmar.  It's also significant, I feel, that the the Youth of Yangon were enabled to speak by Western voices.  I hope you find this film as powerful as I did.
