A heart felt, educational, funny and just well rounded movie you shouldn't miss !
26 November 2011 | by Kyre-223-47079See all my reviews

Excellent movie ! Definitely a must see for anyone in the mood for a heartfelt, educational, funny and just well rounded movie !...it was an eye opening experience (there's just not enough of those) !! Great job everyone on such an amazing picture.. and skateistan on a cause so immeasurably generous and kind. The children and skaters seemed to have such a great time together. Something those kids (it seems) don't get all too much of. The people of skateistan really take "helping those in need" to a whole nother level, by teaching, understanding, giving and "hands on" involving them selves with the youth of Kabul. Keep up the good work everyone !! great movie !!
