Join us on 17th January for our screening of Epicly Palestine’d: The Birth of Skateboarding in the West Bank, a documentary that follows the rise of Palestine’s skate scene.
This will be followed by a Q+A, focused on the impact the occupation has had on the children of Palestine, and the supportive subculture that has emerged through skateboarding. We will be joined by Theo Krish, the director of Epicly Palestine’d, and Dani Abulhawa, a Skatepal ambassador and an academic focusing on skateboarding, gender and politics.
The event will host a photography exhibition, featuring photographs of Palestine by Mouna Kalla-Sacranie, and of its skate culture by Sam Dearden.
This event is organised by The People’s Film Club, a group which unites powerful documentaries with the speakers and activists who understand those issues best.
Doors – 7PM
Screening – 8.15PM
