Filmed in the summer of 2009 and released May 9th 2011, Altered Focus: Burma follows three film makers and skateboarders including Harmony and Analog UK rider Ali Drummond, as they travelled across Yangon and Mandalay. The film explores the reaction to this unseen activity whilst touching on the political situation there.
