Skateboarder captures unseen Burma in new documentary


A recently released documentary aims to show a new side to the rarely seen country of Burma.

Despite media access being tightly controlled by the ruling military junta, three skateboarding friends from Britain managed to gain entry to the country to film a documentary.

It is called 'Altered Focus' and it explores life in Burma behind the headlines.

Filmmaker James Holman spoke to the BBC to give this first person account of his time in the country.
