Skateistan: to live and skate in Kabul

Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul

Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul is a beautiful and moving short film that follows the lives of two young skateboarders from Afghanistan who attend the Skateistan project. Juxtaposing the harsh reality of life in Kabul with the hopes and ambitions of the country's children, the film is a touching ray of light from a country only ever in the news for all the wrong reasons.

As soon as Australian skateboarder and founder of Skateistan, Oliver Percovich dropped his board in Kabul in 2007, he was surrounded by the eager faces of children of all ages who wanted to be shown how to skate. Stretching out the three boards he and a former girlfriend/aidworker had brought with them, “Ollie” began dedicating himself to the creation of a small skate school in Afghanistan.

An inspiring shortfilm showing that making ideas happen can transform lives! They are currently fund raising so why not donate and help them continue to make this idea happen!
