MMoCA presents the Madison premiere of “Skate Kitchen,” an exhilarating portrait of an all-girl NYC skateboarding crew. The first fiction feature by Crystal Moselle (director of The Wolfpack) immerses us in a rambunctious, vibrant subculture. Working with real kids she first discovered on the subway, Moselle mixes thrilling skating footage with an authentic feeling for the experiences of sexually fluid teenaged girls navigating male-dominated spaces.
“Gratifyingly fresh. This fearless, racially diverse, sexually fluid crew of trash-talking young women feels like a convoy from a cooler culture” (Alison Willmore, Buzzfeed).
“An empowering portrait of young women on wheels, but it proves no less surefooted when the wheels come off” (Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times).
Screening will be from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, October 3 at MMoCA. Screenings are free for museum members, $7 for all else.
