CSWG Film Club - 'Skate Kitchen'

- Export as iCalendar
Location: S0.19

You are warmly invited to join us for another session of the CSWG Film Club, co-organised by CSWG and Yasmina Maiga (Sociology).

Film: “Skate Kitchen” (2018), including a post-screening discussion

Wednesday, November 28th

at 6.00 in S0.19

For those of you that aren’t familiar with skate culture and even for those who are or think they are, the link between gender and skateboarding can seem a little farfetched. Nonetheless, ever since its creation, this anti-field sport has proved to be a powerful means of political activism, allowing women to bring feminism from the lecture halls to the streets in new and powerful ways.

Skate Kitchen focuses precisely on the connections between skateboarding, subcultures, gender, feminism and race. Directed by Crystal Moselle, it is a coming-of-age movie following the life of a young girl and her fellow skateboarders in the depths of New York City’s underground scene.

The screening of the film will be followed by a post-show discussion featuring:

  • Dr Emma Beckett (Sociology)
  • Yasmina Maiga (Sociology)
  • Pablo Anto (Warwick Skate Society)
  • Chair: Dr Maria do Mar Pereira (Sociology)

This event is free and open to all, including the general public.
