A small group of Palestinian teenagers gain the attention of the skateboarding world when they create a skate scene from scratch in the heart of the West Bank – a place where you can’t even buy a skateboard – whilst facing the challenges of living under a military occupation.
This is a fundraising film screening with all proceeds going to support the upcoming Jayyous Skatepark Project which will commence in two weeks.

Additional SkatePAL volunteering information will be provided in a post-film presentation and discussion.
