Jas Boude - Skating South Africa's Mean Streets

"To push through the streets is the ultimate freedom. But what happens when the streets do not welcome you? Or get you killed? Scorning their government-built joke of a skate park which is too dangerous to use, the heroes of Jas Boude leave the Cape Flats ghetto – where Table Mountain remains mockingly out of reach – to infiltrate the CBD in search of a feeling and a power denied. Jaw-dropping cinematography and astute political conscience present a city which works for a few in this must-see short film." ~ Encounters International Documentary Film Festival
