Skate Kitchen
Directed by Crystal Moselle
USA | 100 Minutes
Saturday | 2:20 PM
Lyric Theatre
Rated R

The Wolf Pack (Sidewalk 2015) director, Crystal Moselle’s narrative debut, Skate Kitchen stylishly conveys the story of outsider Camille who makes fast friends with a group of fellow skateboarders. Similar to the backstory regarding The Wolf Pack, Moselle randomly met the core cast of non-actors on a train. She enlisted them for a short film, expanding the relationship for Skate Kitchen.  A candid urban coming-of-age tale, the film also explores the challenges faced by young women moving within unavoidable male-centric spaces and the incredible importance of female friendship in modern America.
