A mother’s fight to empower her daughter through skateboarding in India. Filming in April 2017. Join us for the journey on IG 🎥 🎬 🇮🇳 www.kamali-film.com
Excited to see this project. Skateboarding to me is sport, art, transportation, exercise, and builds self-confidence, so I absolutely believes it can & does empower the skater.
At this time the web-site is under construction the IG is live now so give them a follow.
adidas Skateboarding Away Days – not to be confused with Awaydays the 2009 British Film – is adidas’ first feature length skate film.
adidas being involved with skateboarding is nothing new. Some of their team riders – The Gonz considered to be the father of modern street skating – have been with them for over 15 years. Their team is global and this film looks like it will take the viewer around the world.
I’ve watched four of the Making of Away Days videos with Thrasher Magazine and I’m excited for tonight.
Since posting that I’m going to this event – I’ve received some questions on why I’m going when there aren’t any girls in the film. I watch skate videos when I like the skating. To me skateboarding is sport and art. I watch the skater when they capture and hold my attention – I don’t watch a skater because they are a boy or girl.
The messages I heard in the previews and what I hope the film shows is it’s about skating when the vibe is right, it’s about being open to travel and explore, it’s about giving back and inspiring/allowing others to skate, and that there’s more than landing tricks.
Just because I don’t blog about boys skateboarding doesn’t mean I don’t want more boys skateboarding. I want more people skateboarding – seeing that it’s sport & art – I think that’s what adidas wants too – so here’s to seeing the film tonight.
If you’re unable to attend tonight’s premier in LA the next stops are
