Skate Nation by Paul Botwid

“When Sayed, Mohsen, and Hazrat first arrived to Sweden as refugees, they knew nothing about skateboarding, now it’s an important part of their lives. Stockholm Skate Nation is an organisation working with skateboarding as a tool for finding a way into society.”

Skate Nation is a film by Paul Botwid documenting the Skate Nation Charity in Stockholm, which introduces refugees to skateboarding, as a better way to cope and adjust to Western society. It’s quite a moving piece; well worth a watch.
