Skate Kitchen (2018)

Film
Saturday, November 3
8:30 pm
Cost: Free
A free screening of Skate Kitchen (2018)

USA | 106 min | R | DCP | Dir. Crystal Moselle

In the first narrative feature from The Wolfpack director Crystal Moselle, Camille, an introverted teenage skateboarder (newcomer Rachelle Vinberg) from Long Island, meets and befriends an all-girl, New York City-based skateboarding crew called Skate Kitchen. She falls in with the in-crowd, has a falling-out with her mother, and falls for a mysterious skateboarder guy (Jaden Smith), but a relationship with him proves to be trickier to navigate than a kickflip. 

"A touching ode to the rewards and challenges of female friendship..." - Justin Chang (Los Angeles Times)

The What is Family? Film Festival will feature 10 films centered around defining family in a modern context. While family in the past was often a rigid term meant for biological relations and what is known as the nuclear family, the films curated in this festival reflect a more fluid definition of family. The stories of these films represent a diverse range of family types from biological to communal, and from extended family to the feeling of family that comes from a best friend. This festival includes films ranging from documentaries and dramas to comedies and thrillers. We hope you will join us in celebrating all the forms of family that are vital to the human experience.  

Assistive Screening Accommodations for Patrons with Disability:

  • Closed Captions Available
  • Assisted Listening Device Amplification Available
  • Visually Impaired Audio Description not available for this title

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
