A Film by: Karin Kainer
(Israel, 2010, 63 Minutes, Color, Hebrew,English subtitles)
A brief glance at the city: modern, historic, gray. We see it from above. But there is an underground culture living at the edge of the concrete. They look at the city from the ground – Skaters.
They have no religion, no country, no boundaries. The concrete kids refuse to commit, to take responsibility, to serve in the army. Although coming from varied backgrounds they live together and have their own language and religion – Skateboard.
Our hero, Mohammed Kahil, is an Arab-Israeli skateboard champion. In a modern Romeo and Juliet love story, he and Alina Fine, an Israeli Jew, struggle to love and live in times of war and despite their parents' disapproval.
