PLANK - Billy Pols
A short documentary about he 15-year-old Dutch-Moroccan Nassim Guammaz who is a skateboarder – even though he is well aware that Moroccans are supposed to like soccer or kickboxing. “They just don’t think it’s cool,” he explains, “When they think of skaters, they think of that Gothic shit and people with black nail polish.”
Now that his parents are divorced, Nassim lives with his mother and sisters. Things were “not cool” at home before his folks split. Because his father did not keep his word about paying for soccer, Nassim started skating — it is free, after all, and you can do it anywhere.
“Skating is my springboard to another world.”
