Film maker and skateboarder Nathan Gray & theBedouins have a new skate video project on Kickstarter. PUSH Tunisia, is a skateboard activism film that engages the youth culture nearly a year after the Revolution that sparked the Arab Spring uprising. Similar to Gray’s past films Sour and Smile, PUSH Tunisia shows a glimpse of hope for a generation born in a seemingly bleak world. Gray uses the familiar, skateboarding, to breach differences of culture and show the possibilities of creative people struggling to confront a newly freed state.
With a little over 2 days left on the clock, it is extremely close to meeting the funding goal of $14,531. Head over to Kickstarter and give your support. Sweet premiums include a DVD of the film and skateboard decks from the first Arab skateboard company, “Philadelphia Skateboards.”
