Duration: 106m

After a bad skateboarding fall takes her to A&E, 18-year-old Camille is made to promise to never skate again. But when she discovers “The Skate Kitchen” on Instagram, a subculture of girls whose lives revolve around skating, the pull is too strong. Quickly accepted into the group, she finally finds acceptance and support from other girls, but when she befriends a boy from a rival group of skaters, she learns of the complexity of friendship and loyalty.

“SKATE KITCHEN precisely captures the experience of women in male-dominated spaces and tells a story of a girl who learns the importance of camaraderie and self-discovery.” Sundance
