Watching young Afghan skaters in the film made me realize why I’ve spent my entire life as a skateboarder.”
Skateistan is proud to announce the world premiere of the full-length documentary feature SKATEISTAN – Four Wheels and a Board in Kabul. Filmed throughout 2008 and 2009, the film tells the story of the grassroots effort behind the creation of Skateistan, from the beginning. It follows the founders of the NGO, as well as some of the first Aghan youth to step on a skateboard, through both exciting and difficult times.
The feature’s world premiere will be during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (USA) on Saturday, January 29, 7PM, at the Lobero Theatre.
