Jody's Film Series Presents:

Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (If You're a Girl)

Filmmaker: Carol Dysinger 
Running time: 40 minutes

Winner of 2020 Academy Award for Best Short Documentary Film.
They secretly learn to read, write. And yes –skateboard.
Hardly typical in, of all places, Kabul, Afghanistan.
Where it can be punishing to live if you're female.
So come see what it's like to be a student in the Skateistan school.
Where their teacher asks, "What is courage?"
And one of the little girls answers, "When someone goes to school and studies."
Imagine that.

Enjoy the free films, the stay for the post-film discussion facilitated by Jody. With thanks to the collaboration of the Hamline Midway Coalition, the Hamline Midway Elders, and the Hamline Midway Library
