SKATEISTAN The movie out now on DVD
Features While-U-Wait, LLC is proud to announce the long overdue release of the ‘Cinema for Peace’ award-winning, 95 min. documentary ‘Skateistan – Four Wheels and a Board in Kabul’ on DVD.
The film follows Skateistan and its founders over the span of one year, documenting their daily struggle to break down social, gender and ethnic barriers between the children of war-torn Afghanistan with the help of ‘boards and four wheels’ – which have been previously unknown in the country.
The film documents the early efforts of Skateistan in Kabul and the struggle to build the country’s first skatepark. It also shows life in Afghanistan without preconception or prejudice. The documentary is a homage to an amazing aid alternative and, of course, to skateboarding. It presents a look at Kabul in a way that hasn’t been covered by western media, at the austere lives of Afghanistan’s children and the volunteers of Skateistan.
Original English version with choice of Spanish and German subtitles plus additional, previously unpublished scenes
US price $13. Europe, Asia, Australia and South America $ 17
DVDs are sold through SkateistantheMovie.com and selected retailers
The price of the DVD is intentionally kept low because the intend is to have the film seen by a wide international audience, to raise global awareness of this unique, unrivaled and successful aid project – with the help of a board and four wheels.
