Skater Girl - it’s all about finding your purpose

Village children find joy in the simplest of things – pushing a bicycle’s tyre with a stick; diving into a pond in search of rare treasures, or using a rickety plank of wood to skate – like the teenage tribal girl of Skater Girl.

Directed by Los Angeles-based Indian filmmaker Manjari Makijany and released on Netflix on June 11, Skater Girl is about crushing the shackles of patriarchy to embrace one’s passion.
