Grain Media (U.K) are the people behind this new doc on the Skateistan project in Afghanistan. The film documents a school in Kabul that teaches street kids how to skate as well as offering them wider education and guidance.
Skateistan is Afghanistan’s (and the world’s) first co-ed skate school. The school engages growing numbers of displaced youth in Afghanistan through skateboarding, and provides them with new opportunities in education, and personal empowerment. The students themselves decide what they want to learn and then are then connected with the appropriate teachers. GOOD stuff.
