The only catch is that she is a skateboarder and lives in Afghanistan. Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul is a beautiful, verite style, 16mm film about the lives of 2 young skateboarders from Afghanistan. The Skateistan project is Afghanistan's first co-educational skateboarding school. In a country with innumerable problems, Skateistan represents an oasis where children can be children and build the kinds of cross-cultural relationships that Afghanistan needs for future stability. Intimate and challenging in its portrayal of children's stories and stunningly shot, Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul is a touching ray of light from a country only ever in the news for all the wrong reasons.
