Slipping: Skate's Impact on Egypt (2012)
56min · Documentary, Biography, News · 11 October 2012
A biography on Egypt's first, and still to this day, only skateboard shop. Two brothers started the shop which resulted in a never before scene skateboard scene in their country. The project couldn't have been more timely, as these skateboarders created a wonderful parallel alongside their country's growing push from the majority of Egypt's youth for an independent lifestyle. This documentary was filmed during the massive protests during the fall of 2012. The documentary tells the story of this shop and the resulting scene through interviews from the CEOs, their skateboard team (including 1 female), a professional skateboarder, an Arabic movie star, and independent Egyptian filmmaker and a few others.
