Skateistan: To Live and Skate Kabul
See an award-winning short doco about a skate school in war-torn Afghanistan, then live the dream in a sound and video scratch session with award-winning turntablist DJ Wasabi.
Skateistan (Orlando von Einsiedel, 10 mins, UK, 2010) is an awe-inspiring look at a co-educational skate school in Afghanistan. In a nation ravaged by war and political instability, the film documents the lives and aspirations of young Afghani skaters, who - with the help of their boards - remain hopeful and fearless.
The film has received over a million hits online and has been an official selection at a number of top film festivals across the world including Sundance and South by Southwest.
