Skate of Mind

Directed by: Karin Kainer
63 Minutes, 2010

A short glance at the city. Modern, historic, gray, we look at her from above. But there is a large underground culture that is living on the sidelines, at the edge of the concrete, and looking at the city from below – Skateboarders.

They have no religion, no country, no boundaries. These concrete kids refuse to commit and take responsibility (they don’t go to the army); they live together in spite of their backgrounds and have their own language and religion – Skateboard.

One of these skaters is Mohammed Kahil, an Arab-Israeli skateboarding champion. This is his story. A modern Romeo and Juliet love story, between him and Alina Fine, an Israeli Jew, their struggle to love and live in times of war, and the disapproval of their parents.
