This is one of those videos that you truly need to sit down, pay attention and watch the entire 9 minutes. The film was shot last January and it follows two Skateistan students through their days in Kabul on a skateboard. The film won two awards at the LA Skate Film Festival last month and has been selected to be in more festivals worldwide. Maybe the film will help you understand the true power of skateboarding.
