We Skate In Iran is a documentary film about the rise of skateboard culture throughout modern Persia, awarded for the best skateboard short film in Paris surf and skate festival, “Sepanta award” for the best short documentary in San Francisco Iranian film festival and screened worldwide over the last few months.
The project was born from a collision between the Swiss collective Cause and Tsixty, one of Tehran’s major skate crews.
Directed, Filmed and edited by : Benjamin Aryani
For me this has been the project I’ve wanted to do for a long time.
Being involved with skateboarding society for nearly 10 years.
We’ve been there through the highs and lows within this sport.
I wanted to show you how it really looks to skate in our beloved country
to send a message to all Iranian skaters to join forces and work together for the sake of their common passion to reveal an authentic and truthful insight into a social reality so commonly baffled by false perceptions.
The scene is still skating as of today and will be represented daily on our Instagram and Facebook accounts.
