Skate Kitchen

Saturday 17 Apr 2021 - 5:15pm to Monday 19 Apr 2021 - 8:00pm

The first narrative feature from director Crystal Moselle (The Wolfpack) centres around an all-girl, New York City-based skateboarding crew called Skate Kitchen.

Teenager Camille falls in with the in-crowd at Skate Kitchen, drifts from her mother, and falls for a mysterious skateboarder guy (Jaden Smith) in this coming-of-age drama. Writer/director Crystal Moselle immersed herself in the lives of the skater girls and worked closely with them, resulting in the film's authenticity, which combines poetic, atmospheric filmmaking and hypnotic skating sequences. 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. 

'The wonderful thing about Skate Kitchen is how inviting it is, welcoming you into its community and showing you around with cheery spunk. Skate Kitchen is a warm movie.' - Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair

'The Wolfpack director Crystal Moselle makes her narrative feature debut with this winning portrait of a female skater crew.' - Andrew Barker, Variety

'Skate Kitchen is a funny and stirring saga of female empowerment…' - Alonso Duralde, The Wrap
