Longboard Girls Crew and LovingSports are thrilled to announce the Spanish screening of Skateistan The Movie, a documentary about Skateistan, the first Afghan-based co-educational skate school founded by Oliver Percovich & Sharna Nolan in 2007. The film follows Skateistan and its founders through the year 2009, documenting their daily struggle to break down social, gender and ethnic barriers between the children of a war-torn country, building not only a skate school but a safe place for kids to get an education, health care habits, civic responsibility, information technology, the arts and languages to over the 2000 registered children.
Four Wheels and a Board in Kabul’ documents life in Afghanistan without preconception or prejudice. The documentary is homage to an amazing aid alternative and, of course, to skateboarding. 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.
A film by Rene Kock & Nadia Soraya Hennrich, Four Wheels and a Board in Kabul is premiered in Spain by Longboard Girls Crew & LovingSports.
