Skateistan_ To Live & Skate

I ran into this documentary a few months back. Skateistan is about a group of young people in Kabul and their hobby of skateboarding. I’m always skeptical when I see things like this of the motives of the people who create these kind of programs in places away from North America; is it well intentioned support for youth in war-torn or impoverished places, or cultural colonialism (music for instance is often used in this way). Regardless this is a beautiful little film about an unexpected hobby for some kids in Kabul, Afghanistan.
