another video from Skateistan - this one focusing on their GIRL skaters. let these determined young ladies inspire you!
watch Skateistan’s nine minute documentary, (which was screened at Sundance ‘11) showcasing their amazing organization, which uses skateboarding as a way to unite Afghani youth.

check out the short version my Documentary Reel! special thanks to all of my inspiring subjects!
