Skateistan – Skateboarding in Afghanistan

Posted by rod - 22.11.2010

Check out the the nine-minute documentary Skateistan: “To Live and Skate in Kabul, Afghanistan is now available to watch online. Sponsored by Diesel New Voices and Directed by Orlando Von Einsiedel, the beautifully shot documentary was filmed in January 2010 and follows two Skateistan students, Murza and Fazila, through the streets of Kabul.  After winning two awards at the L.A. Skate Film Festival in September, legendary director Stacy Peralta (Dogtown and the Z-Boys and Riding Giants) wrote to Von Einsiedel saying “the film really knocked me out, it brought tears to my eyes and made me realize why I’ve ridden a skateboard all of my life.” If you love this post check out the Ugandan Skateboard Union video
