Tyres

What makes a tyre a tyre, and what is crafted out of the many worn out truck tyres? The film delves into the art of recycling tyres in Myanmar’s former capital. The dismantling, reordering and transformation of tyre materials into new products offers beautiful insights into the flow of work, the skills of craftsmen and women, socio-material interactions and creativity. Captured with a close observational camera and the aesthetic look of black and white images, the film closely follows the daily rhythm of work of tyre recyclers. Each of them is specialized in a certain product made out of tyres. Kyaw Myo Lwin joined the Yangon Film School in 2007 where he has since worked as sound recordist and editor on several films. TYRES was his directorial debut.
