Director Crystal Moselle on her Film Skate Kitchen

Filmmaker Crystal Moselle was drawn to the voices of teenage skater girls on the subway, which prompted her to make a feature film about them. The all-female skating crew allowed Moselle to see, and then depict in her film, how social media can help girls find their "tribe," especially in a world where female skaters are still difficult to find. She hopes the film also speaks to the way young people, particularly young skaters and young women, offer a new perspective on the city of New York and its architecture.
