Barefoot Skateboarders of India

YouTube Preview ImageSkateboarding is being utilized in a village in central India as a trigger for social change. Ulrike Reinhard – a German national – established a skate park in Janwar, Madhya Pradesh in February 2015, with the help of a few Indian and international skateboarding organizations.

The region to which the village belongs is notorious for being one of the most socially and economically backward areas of the country. Untouchability, gender inequality, illiteracy, and alcoholism are rampant here. Through the voices of Ulrike and the children of the village, this short film documents how the skate park is gradually changing the social fabric of the village and addressing some of its most deep rooted issues.
