This is not a documentary about the Skateistan, an international non-profit organization that uses skateboarding and education to empower children. Though, you can consider it as a documentary in the same direction.

Skateistan: To Live and Skate Kabul is a beautiful short movie following the lives of two young skateboarders from Afghanistan. They attend the Skateistan charity project.

And through their skateboarding, they show the reality of life in Kabul with hopes and ambitions of the country’s children. The film presents a touch ray of light in a country that ends up in the news for the wrong and negative reasons.

The movie earned a BAFTA nomination and an Academy Award nomination.
