The full-length documentary, ‘Skateistan - Four Wheels and a Board in Kabul’ tells the story of skateboarding’s beginnings in Afghanistan. As soon as Australian skateboarder Oliver Percovich dropped his board in Kabul in 2007, he was surrounded by the eager faces of children of all ages who wanted to learn how to skate. Local boys and girls started to join him on a daily basis for skateboarding sessions in the Mekroyan fountain. These initial encounters lead to the foundation of Skateistan in 2008.

This DVD should be shared as often as possible - I am a teacher and I will take that to school to show that in classes of different ages. Helpful it is subtitled in Spanisch and German, it opens even more possibilities to show that in calsses and to discuss afterwards what means courage and having an ilusion.
Thank you a lot!
