Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (if you’re a girl)

Ohio Premiere

Directed by Carol Dysinger

United States, Afghanistan, 40 minutes

In war torn Afghanistan, girls are learning to read, write… and skateboard. That’s right. In a society where girls are often denied education, courageous mentors recruit poor kids and teach them academic and life skills in hope of a brighter future. Using skateboarding as a teaching tool, the young recruits earnestly build their courage and strength and find a little joy along the way. Contains subtitles.
