“The story may seem slight in outline, but is truly affecting to experience” – Sight And Sound

Director Crystal Moselle follows her stranger-than-fiction documentary The Wolfpack with her first narrative feature about a real-life New York female skater crew, Skate Kitchen.

Poetic and atmospheric with hypnotic skating sequences, the film offers a millennial – and female-centred – spin on ‘80s skater classics such as Thrashin’, with an aesthetic and New York youth milieu reminiscent of Larry Clark’s Kids. The film’s lively main characters are mesmerising to watch as they cruise through New York whilst also winding their way through concurrent complications of teenager-dom.
