Yalla Yalla

We all hear news about Palestine every once in a while. Still most of us don’t realize how tough life out there is. There is nothing simple about this place. The West Bank is a landlocked territory near the Mediterranean coast at the Middle East. When the founders of the one and only Palestinian skate camp invited the Absurd team to visit their project we didn’t think twice about going there.

Yalla Yalla is a short documentary about the SkateQilya summer skate camp located near the city of Qalqilya, Palestine. Starring Gosha Konyshev, Kirill Korobkov and SkateQilya campers with the guest appearance by Nestor Judkins and Kenny Reed.  Filmed and edited by Gosha Konyshev. Photos by Kirill Korobkov. Screening is set in Fažana’s old square on Friday 28th from 20:00 h.
