Join us for a special viewing of the Academy Award winning film, Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (If You’re a Girl), which follows a class navigating the challenges young girls face in Afghanistan today.
For girls, the chance to skateboard presents a unique experience - to compete, to play, to learn their strength and to gain courage. We follow a class of girls at Skateistan growing through the joy of skating and the warmth of the women who teach them.
The documentary dives in with the heartwarming stories of the female students attending Skateistan (Kabul), providing a rare opportunity for students, through education and sports, to be empowered within their communities.
