Camille, an introverted teenage skateboarder (newcomer Rachelle Vinberg) from Long Island, meets and befriends an all-girl, New York City-based skateboarding crew called Skate Kitchen. She falls in with the in-crowd, has a falling-out with her mother, and falls for a mysterious skateboarder guy (Jaden Smith), but a relationship with him proves to be trickier to navigate than a kickflip.

Crystal Moselle immersed herself in the lives of the skater girls and made sure to work closely with them. As a result, she opted to make the film as authentic as possible. With regard to the film’s overall look, it consists of poetic, atmospheric filmmaking and carefully executed skating sequences.
“Skate Kitchen” stars Jaden Smith, along with Dede Lovelace, Nina Moran, Ajani Russell, Brenn Lorenzo, Rachelle Vinberg, Kabrina Adams, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Hisham Tawfiq, and Jules Lorenzo.
What Makes Skate Kitchen So Special?
In the trailer, we see a group of skaters collectively known as “Skate Kitchen” as they venture around New York City. To everyone’s surprise, they aren’t just any regular skateboarding crew, the “Skate Kitchen” consists of a group of young women who have forged a bond over their love of skateboarding.
Despite, the on going efforts of projecting strong female-led characters in films, there have still been a lack thereof. However, the film features fearless females raising their fists toward a s gender-biased kateboarding community. From a bigger picture, the film portrays how these young women refuse to conform a male-dominated industry.
“Skate Kitchen” will be released in theatres on August 10th.
