Learning to Skateboard in a War Zone - If You´re a Girl (2019)

Directed by: Carol Dysinger

Unimaginable: girls learn to skateboard in Kabul. This is not only a challenge for them but even more so for society. With every practice session in the gym, the girls pick up speed: Their body awareness grows, their self-confidence rises. Suddenly, going to university is no longer a far-fetched idea for two sisters. Hamburg-based director Zamarin Wahdat was honoured with an Oscar for this upbeat film that shows a different Afghanistan. (Human Rights Film Festival Berlin 2021)
