Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (if you’re a girl)

This film tells the story of young Afghan girls learning to read, write – and skateboard – in Kabul. After years of conflict, and with Afghanistan still dubbed ‘one of the worst places to be born a girl’, an organization called Skateistan recruits kids from poor neighborhoods and teaches them skills so they can return to public school and get a start in life.

For girls, the chance to skateboard presents a unique experience – to compete, to play, to learn their strength and to gain courage. We follow a class of girls at Skateistan growing through the joy of skating and the warmth of the women who teach them.

100% of ticket sales from each screening will be donated to Kids in the Spotlight.
