Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul has been shortlisted for the 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards!!
It 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.
