It’s 2018 and never a more fitting time for a film that has been masterfully adapted from a popular Instagram account. Crystal Moselle’s Skate Kitchen is the groundbreaking story about a group of badass young women.

Camille lives on Long Island and spends most of her days skateboarding alone. After a serious injury, Camille’s single mother finds her daughter’s hobby too dangerous and forces her to quit. But the pull is too strong and,after discovering “The Skate Kitchen” on Instagram, Camille heads to New York City, board in hand. There, the women quickly adopt her as their own and, before she knows it, she is living her dream skating and partying with her very own crew. But Camille comes to understand the complexities of the group dynamic when she befriends a boy from a rival group of skaters.

Skate Kitchen is an authentic take on one young woman’s road to self-discovery as she learns the importance of female friendship and doing what you love.
