Documentary filmmaker Crystal Moselle (The Wolfpack) transitions into narrative cinema with Skate Kitchen, a sublime film set in a small skating community in New York.
A bored and lonely teenager, young Camille's (Vinberg) life changes dramatically when she befriends a group of New York female skateboarders and discovers both the excitement and sense of belonging she’s been missing in dull suburbia. With a cast of actual (and ridiculously good) skateboarders, this sublime ode to youth and rebellion feels authentic, vibrant and vital.
