Introverted 18-year-old skateboarder Camille lives on Long Island with her single mother. After a painful injury, she promises her mother she’ll hang up her board, but her love for skating is too strong and she quickly finds herself back in the parks. On Instagram she discovers “The Skate Kitchen,” a subculture of girls whose lives revolve around skating, and builds up the courage to seek them out. The cool and confident big-city girls quickly adopt Camille as part of their gang, and soon they’re featuring her in trick videos and exposing her to a wild life she’s never experienced. Writer/director Crystal Moselle (The Wolfpack) immersed herself in the lives of the skater girls and worked closely with them, resulting in the film’s authenticity, which combines poetic, atmospheric filmmaking and hypnotic skating sequences.
