Exactly two years after our previous audiovisual project Endless Roads which reached over 3.000.000 views; we’re hitting the road again and starting a new adventure that will be documented as a full-length movie.
OPEN is the name and concept of this new film that aims to open the spectator’s eyes to a new experience through a skate journey of a unique group of super talented female riders to a faraway, exotic and unexplored un-skated land: ISRAEL. Our challenge is to show a different and less known face of this country. The OPEN team goes to Israel with our eyes and minds wide open, ready to receive anything this place and its people have to offer.
OPEN will tell the story of 14 girls from different places and cultures following their interactions and emotions while skating the most diverse spots of this land. From the Golan Heights to the old city of Jerusalem, the dramatic Judean desert to the vibrant metropolis of Tel Aviv, OPEN will definitively show a never before seen part of this land.
A new director will make this trip an unforgettable and edgier visual experience compared to our previous work. This will compliment the destination and momentum the female scene is going through. Daniel Etura a Venezuelan filmmaker and skater based in Madrid, recently nominated for a Latin Grammy and Director of the Madrid Skate Film Festival will be at the helm of this production.
In ISRAEL we’ll have the help of a local board company DASILVA BOARDS as well as members of the Israeli longboarding community, who will give us a first-hand tour of their country as they come along with the crew on this soul and skate journey. Last but not least, during and after our stay in Israel we’ll work together with Longboarding for Peace, a sports association with whom we aim to spread the word of peace and stoke.
Because as you know, few things bring people together like skateboarding does.
