Amigo Skate, Cuba

Directed by Vanesa Wilkey-Escobar

Cast: Rene Lecour, Che Pando

In Cuba. Skateboarding is not a sport. It is illegal; American. If you want to skate, you do it in a drainage ditch. Singular. The only skate park in Havana. Cuba’s youth built it, make it work, but dream of smooth concrete, real ramps and government recognition. Join Rene Lecour and his transnational team, Amigo Skate Cuba, as they struggle, and smuggle, to make that dream come true. Conformity meets rebellion while cultures and friendships clash in Vanesa Wilkey-Escobar’s debut film.
