Head to the Skip Garden for a special event celebrating award-winning documentary Epicly Palestine’d, alongside a Q&A with director Phillip Joa and a performance from poet Rohan Ayinde.
Epicly Palestine’d tells the story of how a small group of Palestinian teenagers created a skate scene in the heart of the West Bank – a place where you can’t even buy a skateboard – whilst facing the challenges of living under the Israeli military occupation.
After the film, director Philip Joa will be answering questions and inviting constructive and respectful discussion about the wider context of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Poet and activist Rohan Ayinde from South London will then provide a special spoken word performance. Rohan regularly campaigns for Take Back the City and Black Lives Matter, and recently performed at Demand The Impossible, a radical politics forum for young people.
This event is free to attend, and alongside the screening, Skip Garden Kitchen’s talented chefs will be cooking up some tasty Middle Eastern food, with proceeds going to charity SkatePal.
