Revolutions on Granite

Thrasher released Brendan Gilliam and Peter Dayton Conopask’s documentary about the skateboarders of Kyiv, Ukraine, focusing on the city’s Maidan Square.

This film is about the skateboarders of Kyiv, from the first skater until today, passionately finding a way to make it happen in an unlikely place. Regrettably, their story gained a new significance when Russia launched an unjust war on Ukraine, the tragic results of which are still unfolding every day.

I hope this film can give the world a relatable view into a conflict that we mainly experience through headlines and news stories.
