Epicly Palestine’d: The Birth of Skateboarding in the West Bank

– by Wendy Morley, VW’s Creative and Editorial Director –

An occupied nation oppressed from the outside and oppressive from the inside. A group of teens who discover skateboarding in a country where there are no skateboards available to purchase. Unconnected people who become friends through their love of skateboarding. An organization (SkatePal) that works to help this growing community. An eloquent documentary about kids just trying to be kids, have fun, feel free and perfect their moves in a place where fun is not easily found.
